Less is more!
What kind of result can you get in your photos if you restrict yourself to only a handful of colours or why not just black and white?
Black on black
While taking this shot i did not have any access to a studio, so i was forced to improvise.
To start of i needed a pitch black room and some kind of light source and a tripod.
My light of choice this time was two candles places outside of the actual framing.
That's why the tripod was crucial cause i was going to use a long shutter speed.
Focal Length: 55 mm
Shutter Speed: 10/1 s
White on white
This one was fun to make both the paper swan and later also develop the picture in a darkroom. After that i later scanned it to get it up here. The feathers makes for a good birds nest but it also acts as a smooth transition from the swan to the white background.
Bound by steel
Instead of black and white, here i used yellow as a base color. The chains are placed so that they gradually get out of focus. My goal with this photo was for it to give off a somewhat eerie feeling.
Focal Length: 128 mm
Shutter Speed: 1/200 s
Hope you found some photos inspiring and thank you for tuning in!
