"Witch Hats - Edited"
Mon 30-Sep-13 11:05 PM by domer2760


Edited 30 Sep 2013 to include the pre-BW conversion image

It was raining today so I tried (once again) to reproduce the chiaroscuro lighting effect of the master painters. The scene was lit by a single candle. A large reflector was positioned above and to camera right to give a little fill light. This was the only light for the shot. Without the candle, the image was black. Image was converted to BW with Silver Efex Pro 2.

D90IR (590nm), Nikkor 20mm AFD, f/4, 1/4 sec, ISO 400.

Hi Dan,
The B&W in my opinion has much more drama. I like the details of the foreground/table front, and shadows. Very creative!

Thanks Kathy. I like the BW version best too. I wanted the shadows to be a prominent element in the scene and the BW version brings them out more.

The shadows on the wall in the B&W really work.

Hi Dan,

I feel that you have very nicely demonstrated the effect you were after. Not only is the contrast apparent between light and shadows but their is a more perceptible depth to the image as a result.

Paul

Paul,
Thank you for your kind comments. I had not considered the depth aspect.

Thanks Bill. I created the shadows to add drama and make the photo less like a strange catalog photo. I appreciate your comments.

Very nice Dan. Almost all of my IR shots rely on available light but you really have a talent for bringing your own. Both versions have their strengths but I'm partial to the B&W.

Is that a poppy on the table between the hats and, if so, may I assume it is intended to allude to the Wicked Witch of the West?

Thanks Matt. You are very perceptive. Unfortunately, the flowers were Brown Eyed Susans that were well beyond their prime. The girzzled, naked stems were colected from the neghbor's flower garden. Yes, I was alluding to the Wicked Witch of the West. Good catch.

I really like the B&W version. Too bad there isn't an empsty wooden bucket and a half burned broom in the scene! Dorothy would be proud.

Thanks Tom. The setup you describe would be fun to shoot. One of my coworkers made a leather hat and a broom for a High School production of the Wizard of Oz. Her daughter was the Wicked Witch of the West. I don't think she would allow me to set fire to the broom.

Speaking of brooms, when I came downstairs on Monday morning the broom was still "hovering" in the window. Thought I would share this snapshot even though it has nothing to do with infrared photography.
