the last two are my attempt at wabi sabi, the little ink bottle is about 2 inches high, the first photo's I took like this I had the bottle placed about 6 inches from the end of the table and the camera low down, the table line and shadow went across the middle of the rose and it looked unbalanced, in these two the bottle is about 1 inch from end of table and camera still low creates more balance but I think if I put the camera on the table I would get the line at the bottom of the bottle, I will try that next time.
I am really liking the pure setting, on my camera it is on the setting with symbol of a painters palette, it is also where I get black and white, pinhole and other colour ways. I think the pure takes out a lot of the shadows and is the softer look I am trying to get. the one in the middle was taken in the garden, I picked the rose (I only have one in the whole garden) and placed it on the lavender bush, I liked the colour contrast between pink and grey it was on pure setting but still brighter than I wanted. the top two the pure setting is what I am looking for. What do you think.
Better go and put all the props away now. I enjoy trying to create something that I have in my eyes mind. Getting there.
Note, none of these have been adjusted on the computer just as I have taken them from my camera
Wooops I made a mistake, this was the one I meant to put on, as you can see the edge of the table is level with the bottom of the bottle, can you see how much better it is balanced and you get the nice shadows on the wall
