Checkerboard Bottles by Cindy Lynch

February 2021 - Checkerboard Bottles

About the Image(s)

This is something a little different from me. I like the contrast in both tone and lines in this one. The bottles had colored water in them and I had it in color and never did much with it. Then I decided to try it in monochrome and loved the contrasts. That’s one thing about the pandemic “ I may not be taking many new photos, but I have the time to review and redo old ones! Settings: f/8, 1/100, ISO 1000, 70 mm focal length with a tripod.

Hi Cindy. What an intriguing image! So many shapes, textures and range from pure black to pure white. I love how the various components create their own unique reflections. Well done!

Cindy, You do come up with some interesting still life images. This one certainly has a lot going for it, the contrast, the textures, the shapes. I also like the reflection on the bottom, I would not change anything. Nice shot.   Posted: 02/14/2021 16:44:22

Sorry but to me the strong wire fence pattern background distracts me too much - it fights with the bottles for attention, but the pattern through the bottles is another story. I'd also agree that colors would really add to confusion.
May I also add "I NEED TO ESCAPE". Come on spring, shot #2, racing and an open zoo..
FYI I was reading my recent Garden & Gun mag (planning my escape) and saw a reference to a still life artist (Laurin McCracken)that supposedly has a great touch with glass objects that I want to check out. Maybe something to encourage me to explore still lifes like yours.   Posted: 02/20/2021 16:13:48
