Blue Guitar

Blue Guitar

Took the Canon on an all day shopping trip with best mate S-J (aka No 1). Not surprisingly not many photo opportunities arose!! Decided to explore lighting again and chose for my subject my other 'not so earnest' New Year's resolution (to resume learning to play guitar) as a reminder and for the lovely blue.

Lit with only a couple of candles on a long exposure, I highlighted select areas with a small hand torch while the shutter was open (idea from Digital SLR Photography Magazine). Needed a bit of touching up in Photoshop due to unspotted blemishes due to the low light.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi
10s f/4.5 at 34.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Incredible matey!! you're a bit good at this aren't you? Oh, and there were SOME opportunities for photo's whilst shopping, I think a fine shot like this of the almond croissant would make a fantastic Poster! :-D Will keep watching for more great pics - no pressure! See you soon! No.1.x

Very nice. Excellent work indeed. Love the lighting. And I know all about the lack of photo opportunities
when shopping. Don't think the sun has shone once since we
got home from Manchester, when of course the sun was shining but
there was no time to stop. V
