Share Six: July 2017: Artificial Light

This month Ceri of Ceri Herd Photography chose the topic Artificial Light.  I have to confess that once again I was pretty stumped.  I have done some studio work that I have already shared on this blog.  I don’t have a model at home except the cats and they are not very cooperative.  When the camera comes out they walk away.  Richard had put a bright night light on the upstairs level of the staircase which gave off some shadows but that wasn’t working for me.  Finally after breakfast with my son on Friday I decided to head on down to the Mizner Museum.  They had a great display of glasswork, but a lot of the art I had seen on my previous visits.  However,  the museum uses a lot of artificial lighting and so it was perfect for my theme this month.

All the images were taken with my 70-300mm lens.  I hope you enjoy what caught my attention.

This was a wall of what appeared to be glass half swords forming a cross in the middle and the overall image in the shape of a heart. While it was lit up on the wall I really did not see the shape of the heart until I was editing.


This image reminded me a bit of the “trash the wedding dress” phase that has been going around. I loved all the glass bubbles with the light reflecting off of them.


This was a bust in the middle of the walk way which I have edited only to show the light shining onto it.


This is a tree made up of tiny pieces of reflective glass. The lights shining onto it give a spray of light off the glass pieces. By focusing in a different area and then moving across to take the image of the tree I was able to get all of this crazy reflective bokeh light.


This is an interesting piece of art made up of balls. When editing I loved how the light was focused in the center creating shadows on the outside.


As part of the glassworks, this was one of the most interesting combinations on display. There is so much going on in this image.
