Leica S2 - Summarit S70

I know this is the pentaxforum. My Pentax is just new to me (so no real foto tours so far)
Beautiful photograph! And don't worry, this may be Pentaxforums but this thread is brand-agnostic

Thanks for your contribution!

Nice control of shadow and highlights...

Floating necklace



A still life translation from my sketchbook, with the aim of letting a necklace float in unusual light. It should not be an realistic take-up, e.g. To work out the materials.




For image composition:
The necklace hangs on a transparent thread on the brooch on the head. This is mandatory because otherwise the chain itself can not float without help in the bow. This means the picture is actually photographed on its head. The background brightness is generated by an optical narrow beam. Standing upside down - from the right a stripped stripelight and from the left a brightener with mirror foil which is glued to cardboard. The Flairs were created with a pot scratch, which I put into the lens, and brought to the side from below with a snoot to light up. The star arises from vaseline, on a glass disk in star shape, through which I photographed. I had to work on the EBV in the reflection, however, because I did not pass the vaseline precisely enough. Finally, the camera set to 3800 Kelvin to get the cool color mood.

So the picture has been really photographed.

Greeting Gerd

Nice series.
I've wanted to try a digital back on my 500C/M for years now.

Interesting account of how you envisioned and then executed the shot. I don't think I've heard of a photographer sketching out a composition before -- this is really intriguing.

Not unusual at all to figure out and plan compositions with drawings. Photographs are just a medium.

I work almost exclusively with sketches in the product or still life photography. Either it is own sketches or one gets them from the advertising agencies, which must then also be implemented the same. Often, ideas come when one sees certain objects or situation. I then write these things into my personal sketchbook to convert them somehow or other similar.

I would like to see more. Do you have some examples? In my experience, it's usually the other way around, an artist uses a photograph as the basis for a drawing and/or painting.
