Today’s The Daily Shoot’s assignment is: “Make a photograph that features repetition.”
Paper clips (pretty cool looking ones I might add) shot on a piece of glass with an opaque piece of plexiglass underneath. The glass was raised about a 1/2″ off the plexi. Speedlite was fired from camera left (a little high) which provided the shadows and the plexi provided the reflection! I don’t think I would have normally taken an image like this if it weren’t for The Daily Shoot (meh, who am I kidding, I would have taken a shot like this!). 😉 Enjoy…
really perfect this blue shade, exelent photo
Thank you for stopping by, hope you liked what you saw. 😀
Very creative and artistic take on the assignment. Love this!
Thank you Karen! 😀
This is actually gorgeous. I love that in all of your photos you have such fabulous colours to show! Colours are simply my favourite!
Thanx for the wonderful comment!
Damn! that’s pretty impressive!!! love the shot, and thanks for the great background info on the how-to!!!
Aww, thanx Mike! I had a good time playing around with this shot, well, I have a good time figuring out most of my shots but had a more enjoyable time figuring out this one!
Very inventive and great output there.
Thank you Nigel. 😀
You are so creative! I would have never thought of anything you just described in your setup. Very cool!
Thanx Morgan. I’ve been toying around with the idea of a piece of glass raised off the surface for a little while, glad you liked it.
Nice shot. You have a talent for making ordinary things look interesting.
Thank you Mike!
Fantastic use of light and creativity. I agree, you would have come up with this with or without TDS. 🙂
Who was I trying to kid when I said that I wouldn’t have come up with this photo without TDS? 😛 Thank you for the comment Emily.
Great shot David! Shadow and reflection at the same time, amazing. I’m definitely going to have to start playing with some reflection shots!
Thank you Jim, from what I’ve seen with your blog, you will enjoy capturing reflections!
This is a very cool shot. An external flash is definitely one my next “toys.”
You are a wealth of good ideas for setting up shots. I don’t have a “studio” per se. I just work mainly on the island in my kitchen. I love how you got some distance and depth in reflection of the clips. I think I might have to try this. 🙂
Thank you Cheryl! An external flash can be so much fun, I think you will enjoy having one! As far as my “studio”, it consists of…my garage! 😀
Very nice take on the TDS assignment David. You do very well with TDS shots.
Love the reflection besides the lighting and thanks for the explanation on how you were able to execute this.
You are welcome for the explanation and thank you for your kind words! Glad you like the image.
Ok, only YOU could make a friggin paper clip look like art. Perfect lighting and reflection. The Daily Shoot really is good for inspiring creativity!
Hahaha, thank you Jolene! The paper clips made it easy on me to make them look good! 😀
