Aswure 68 : A small arm bracelet was given in the hospital. This way the nurses could identify the baby’s.
I made a made a macro photograph of it and experimented with the underground. In this case I put the bracelet on a plastic cd cover which gives it that out of focus reflection.
Gimp treatment: none
A small child claims my attention these days. I started wondering how she sees the world. Her vision range is different and therefore her view of the world is intriguing.
Her toys are there to be played with or mishandled and even neglected… My new theme goes into the point of view of the baby or her toys.
I’m going on familiar territory ; close up and macro photography. I want to explore more of this realm. I want to check out where the line is. It will be part of this shoot, for starters…
This photograph got the most likes. The baby and the ghosthouse got mentioned as favourites giving that 1900 feeling.
For me this theme gave me lovely insights. First is the use of 3200 ASA on my camera. That gives a beautiful grain and enables me to take photographs in darkend rooms ( which gives me more space to work with natural light > my favourite light)
Second, I have installed the vignette in Gimp and it really adds to some photographs.
Also I looked more to the pictures of that time and learned form them ( I now have two boxes of old photo’s of my great-grandfather which I want transfer to the digital realm. another project to tackle)
What didn’t work out in this theme: I would have loved to do two studio photo shoots. Alas time, and personal things got in the way and therefore the models I had in mind could not make it. A real pity but since my hands are already twitching to do another theme, I let those plans go. Maybe the will come to light one day… and maybe not.
Looking at this Sepia Aswure 52 ist which ended with the most likes…It gives me an intense sad smile because this photograph is precisely in a period which reflects its mood. ~I dedicate this Photograph to Robert Jan. ~
