Three Colours: Blue

A brief update this, featuring 3 more images from the weekend still life session at the Nottage. Nothing particularly unusual or quirky about these shots - they're just an example of how simple can be pleasing too (IMO). Shot with a macro lens and window light, late afternoon.

Life Of Brian

"Blessed be the cheese graters" - that's the line isn't it?
Wivenhoe Photography Group undertook a still life session at the Nottage, using ambient light (primarily the large balcony window there), and someone brought along a cheese grater. I despise cheese, but the way the late afternoon light played over and through the grater made me thing 'abstract'. The lens was a 60mm macro left wide open to blur those dots of light, and, of course, a tripod was essential.
I boosted the colour a little with Photoshop LAB colour, but not as much as you might think.
For the black and whites I applied a lith-style curve.
