#stilllifelounge Sunday Showcase
When was the last time you stopped to examine the way the light falls across the floor or how a petal connects to the stem? My guess is, it’s been awhile. When starting the still life lounge, #stilllifelounge Jen (@ikebana_jen) and I took into account the beauty of the mundane. The objects you see everyday but pass over for cityscapes or similar grandiose shots. The lounge is a place where we slow down and take in the details. The small things the force you to take a closer look at everyday objects. Out of our tag has grown a beautiful community of photographers that like to rest in the mundane also. Every week we introduce a new subject and take the time to encourage one another. We do hope you’ll stop by and smell the roses with us soon.
Our subject of the week was lamp light
This weeks highlight is from
Karen, @panomama. This is what she had to say about her work:
Wandering through a cavernous small-town bar with great artifacts and fantastic live rockabilly, I found this old lamp askew in the window of a deserted room. I was enchanted by the ambient light bouncing off of an old white car parked outside on the street. The room was dark and the fall-off of light on the lamp was just beautiful. When it came time to edit the shot I discovered a filter that mirrored the checked oilcloth on the table. Though I cloned out the car in this version, with bright light filtering through the window, it was the patterned reflection in this edit that evoked a visceral response in me. Light Whispers is the result.
Please join us this week as we explore light further with our subject being shadows.
