Piano at Sunset

Piano at Sunset

Continuing with my playing with Chiaroscuro (or pseudo-chiaroscuro?), this is our piano at sunset. This was taken with my digital camera and processed (in Aperture) with the red filter for B&W conversion. I think that I like the “mini” direction this is moving in. I’ve got several shots that are waiting for me on film, but none with a red filter. I’ll need my tripod for that, and that will be a bit more challenging with the little ones (especially around dinner time).

Piano at Sunset, detail

A detail shot of the music holder and shadow. Should I have tried this at a different angle? More dead on? Again, processed with the red filter during monochrome conversion.

Print for Competition



The Champaign County Camera Club is holding their annual photography contest, and here is a scan of one of my prints for the competition.

I have just received an enlarger meter from Darkroom Automation, and this is one of the first prints that I made using it. I have to say that using the enlarger meter is a breathe of fresh air. It’s incredibly straight forward to determine where to start with a picture. While I really would have appreciated the British version by RH Designs, this was considerably cheaper.

We also did a 2 year old shoot for Stella.

My personal favorite.
