February Challenge: Day 3 – Shot Glass Mirror

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

So week 1 is over, and it was way too short. I was kind of having fun shooting clear stuff. At the end of each week, I’ll post the final photo along with the thumbnails from the previous days. And I’ll also remind you all to participate in the February Challenge if you aren’t already doing so.

This was a CLEAR shot glass partially full of CLEAR liquid posed on top of a mirror and lit with an off-camera slave flash. Funny thing about this photo — it was the first shot out of about 50. I guess I’m just that good. I could’ve saved myself about half an hour of messing around with flash angles and diffusers. Oh well, it’s good practice.

OK, so I kind of cheated on this one too. I actually took the photo on day 4 rather than day 3. Shame on me. But I came up with the idea on the 3rd… does that count for anything?

February Challenge: Day 1 – Glass Flower

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

The February Challenge is all about color – you pick a color each week and document those colors. So my first color will be my favorite color… clear. It’s a great color because it takes on the color from the things around it. So it’s every color and no color all at the same time!

Now I realize that many of you may think that clear is not a color, but ask yourself this… what color are your windows? What color are your glass dishes? What color is water (assuming it’s clean)? How about diamonds? My wife hates the fact that I insist clear be my favorite color, so this week is dedicated to her.

This particular image is an abstract of a CLEAR glass candy dish lid positioned on top of a purple DVD-R with an orange background (a shirt). The DVD served to reflect some nice rainbow colors that you can see in the refraction of the CLEAR glass.

So is anybody else joining in with the February Challenge?
