After my first richer coloured entry, I wanted to try something a little different… a portrait format collage using photos of a miniature still life I set up – macro-still-lives if you will… I used feathers, grass, dried flowers, beads, glitter and mirror surfaces and shot in afternoon partly sunny conditions.
- Mirror mosaic pen cup as backdrop to feathered foreground is a good example of the prismatic qualities achieved by refraction.
- Refractions on the white backdrop caused by the sun’s rays hitting them at that angle – geometry in motion, the mirror-mosaic pen cup is in sharper focus giving a sense of scale to the glitter bottle and pink feather (which is quite tiny)
- Translucent glitter’s facets sparkle at different angles demonstrating the prismatic effects of plastic.
- A subtle refraction on clay bead and gently touching the dried daisy petals.
There is lots to do today
I play with photos
