About the Image(s)

I don't stray too far from my light painting technique these days. It is something that works for me, and I never seem to run out of subject matter.
The garden is in a state of recovery with nothing growing to photograph. But, over the holidays I made quite a few loaves of bread as gifts for friend and family. Thus, it was no surprise that this loaf would end up in my studio, sitting in the dark for a bit, waiting for me to start (light) painting.

Well, another strong image. I need to get started but I've never done one. I'm going to go look at a tutorial on the internet.
Bravo, the composition is ideal, the colors well highlighted.
The processing is perfect.
I would have insisted on the right handle which hardly appears and I would have made a test without paper under the bread. But it's just curiosity, the image is beautiful like this.

I love the warm tones of this image Heidi, I can smell the bread. Your use and arrangement of the elements all combine to produce a very appealing mood. The colours and lighting are just right. With every respect to Sophie, to me, the two handles on either side give balance to the image, while the paper, well lit near the camera and not so well lit away from the camera, gives a degree of depth to the image. Warm tones and textures to the timbers provide great effect. Congratulations.   Posted: 01/16/2022 04:52:40
