Photography is all about how one uses light and shades. In this perspective it is somewhat similar to computer science which is all about zeros and ones! :) Ok, that was a PJ, I accept!
They were lying in a plastic box, submerged in water for over 5 months! I was almost about to throw them and thats why I had opened that box. Luckily they were still good! Then only I realised that they were so beautiful!
As I had some time that night, decided to experiment with them by using different sources of light.
Arragment of these to have a pleasing composition posed an initial challenge. The presence of an additional variable - 'colored balls' were real challenge to place in specific places to enhance the viewing pleasure.
For this, I chose my 50mm lens which I love the most. As it was 11 at night and my mom was busy with some work to call it a day, I dint want to call her to help me out in holding the LEDs in different positions. Decided to do all the things alone!
When I switched off the main light and as the LED light fell at an angle close to ground, the magic started! Honestly, I never expected this to be this much spectacular! Holding the LED in one hand, away from the arrangement and using the other hand to release the shutter was fun!
Then I decided to go one step further, using two light sources! But, my problem was both were of different intensities. Now if I had used them from equal distance then the brighter was over powering the effect created by the smaller one. Decided to place the smaller one on a support at a particular position and I held the brighter one far away. The viewfinder was amazed by the result and was telling me to release the shutter! :) Result is below!
The couple of hours spent experimenting with light was very productive. Got to learn some important things.
It re-assured my belief that an image is all about how you place the subject and how you handle the light falling on it!
Hope you enjoy some images here.
