About the Image(s)

This is a work in progress. I have a folding box that I use for photos. It is about 2.5 feet by 3 feet.
I used a glass sphere. I used a string of lights under the sphere. I placed a textured cloth over
the lights. I put a some blue textured material that came a packing behind the sphere. I used
some light painting too. I used negative EV to drop the exposure. The two stars were there because of the
f 16. I made them brighter with Topaz Star Effects.
F 16, 1/5th second. ISO 100. Pentax K “ 3 III. Pentax 50 mm f 1.4 lens.

Mark, I find myself coming back to this often to try to understand what it is. A perfect abstraction, I notice something more each time. I think it was certainly worth the time and complexity of the shot. There seems to be movement and mystery. I asked my wife if it did anything for her and she said no. That means it is an excellent abstraction!   Posted: 09/18/2023 17:48:11

Thank you. I am experimenting with refracted light.   Posted: 09/19/2023 12:58:27
