Beginning Photography

The musings of a budding photographer

A lazy day

leave a comment »

A bit of a lazy day with the camera, mostly because it’s heaving it down and I’m not willing to catch pneumonia just to take a photo.  But, I do like to keep you entertained, so here is a proof of concept shot taken a couple of days ago.

The idea is pretty simple and you can see what I am working towards. I like all the elements in this shot, but  you may agree with me it needs refining. For starters the label should really be the other way round, this is the back of the bottle. I took this shot quickly to see if the idea works, principally because I was lying down on a freezing concrete floor and didn’t fancy messing about for 15 mins to get the perfect shot if it wasn’t going to work.

Now I know it does I can wait for the right weather and see if I can make it better. Who knows, I may spend half an hour at it and decide I got it right with this 10 second rush job.
