[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken for an assignment on another website. The topic was "topdown." I composed this shot at the end of my last session with the day lily. It was the very last composition before I packed everything up for the night. I had a studio light almost directly above the chair, but facing to the left of the image to diffuse the light. I placed my trusty black background cloth on the floor (now I have tons of blonde dog hair to get out of it) to remove the distraction of the carpet in my living room.

I Bridge I bumped exposure up a little bit and in Photoshop I nudge contrast up a touch. Then I resized and uploaded here.

Hello Scott

Excellent capture here, good use of shadow and light and nice texture, it looks to me like the back of a wooden chair.

yes, very nice shadow that created by the lamp. simple but effective.


Hi Scott,
Nice "abstract" And good use of lights..Right exposure and good tones. Like very much, the use of space, and composition.
