Would be interested in how this photo was set up.
A very interesting photo. I would love to know how you set this up as well.
I call this image “suspended,” which seems to fit with the times. It was made in the atrium of the Whitehall Hotel in Houston (site of the FotoFest portfolio reviews). I climbed the stairs until I was about level with the lights and, as I didn’t have my “real” camera, I used my iPhone in portrait mode, which can darken the background. I further darkened the background by using a curves layer in Photoshop.
This photo feels very “sculptural” to me, that is, I’m very aware of the shapes in space. Very nice.
Larry: great subject and I love it in b&w. I think I see some shades of gray in the background. Could they be painted black?
Larry, as usual, your vision astounds me.
Larry, I always look forward to your images and think ‘suspended’ is an apt name for this photo. Although suspended there is a feeling that at any time these lights will simply float away out of the frame. I agree with Jay’s comment about the gray in the upper right side of the photo.
This photo has a surrealistic feel to it. Is it shot in color and converted to b&w or were all the shades white?
Shot in color and applied a B&W layer in Photoshop.
Photo reminds me of floating luminaries. Love it.
HI–this is my favorite photo of the round. One of my friends had 24 photos at Houston foto-fest, but couldn’t attend due to travel restrictions from Italy.
Great image with lovely shapes, lines and a broad range of tones.
