The beauty of simplicity

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.

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.

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.
