Afro carving

My first attempt with a light box
which I constructed from odds and ends around the house.
You can probably tell one light bulb is yellow and one white
Couldn't find two the same :(

Canon EOS 6D ,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
1/25s f/2.8 at 100.0mm iso160 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Well done, and I also think having two colours of light is a positive. V

You're on your way, this is very good!

I love the warm light on his face, it looks like the sun is shining on him.

Well done Gil. I too think that having the two different light colors adds to this. I think we are going to see an explosion of home photography, still life and macro images in the ensuing weeks and months. This is a good example of creativity for all of us. ~BV~

I like it! I think it was serendipitous about the lights and agree Neil! Very Nice! BV

What a beautiful work of art. You did a very good job with your new Lightbox. Well presented with the warm tones.

You did a nice work and maybe the two different tonality of light match well and the effect is good.

That's good. He's facing the morning sun

Well done, Gill. I'm not nearly that industrious! I like the effect with the two shades of light. V

the figure is fascinating, like a man gazing at the sky...the two shades of light work well together, with the yellow bulb providing welcome warmth..

Nicely captured, especially for your first attempt. I don't think the different color lights makes that much difference. V.
