One More CTO Assignment Pic

For some reason this photo did not show up in my CTO assignment results search. But thankfully, a reader pointed it out in the comments.

Big hat tip to The Light Whisperer for this neat cross-gelling, light-bouncing image.

Says TLW:

"F8 - ½ second. Camera white balance set to tungsten. Two flashes, one outside window (left) without any gel for a (daylight environment to simulate moonlight) , a second in a hall outside the room (right) with strong orange gel. Additional light from a oil lamp allowed to burn in for ½ second. "

Wow, cool. And warm, too...

Yeah, out of few posted on this assignment - this one is the most interesting, b/c not only it is using technique, but it also got story in the shot.

Very creative.

This is excellent work. I like these photos where the artist stages everything, creating a truely exciting moment. Not an opportunistic shot but really a work of art!
