"You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being it is possible to have real communication with the earth, which is the highest form of prayer." Thich Nhat Hanh

THE FIG

                                                                                        ©2015 Andy deBruyn


This morning I thought I do something fall-ish. This image was made in my office/studio on a drafting table with window light as tone and the key was a flash fitted with a Lumiquest Softbox III
off to the left pointing down about 40 degrees set to 1/32 power.

The camera was fixed with a Nikkor 35mm f2, (FX 52mm). Camera was in manual mode with the f stop set to f2.8 and with an ISO of 100 I was able to shoot at a speed of 1/250th.

The open fig was propped up using museum wax.

I usually work with music in the background, this morning it was Karlheinz Stockhausen's "Kontakte" performed by Mike Truesdell and Renate Rohlfing.

The overall color toning was done in camera with slight vignetting and a bump of 85 filtering done in post.

Click image to isolate.

Thanks for stopping by.
