I’ve been experimenting this eve with a view to this months assignment. I’ve been trying to work out what a silhouette is and how to get some depth in an image.
I havent tried to take this sort of image before so I’ve had an interesting evening messing around with the flash. Had a bit of an accident though. Managed to pour wine everywhere while trying to get it into the glass in the dark and operate the laptop which was controlling the camera!!
There is a set of 5 of these images and the others can be found on Flickr HERE. C&C would be gratefully received
