More String

By chase
Another from my session with string. A couple more bits added, different composition.
The box I found in my Dads' shed it's lovely, old and battered ( a bit like me Wink ), great textures for photography with the different layers of paint. I think you will be seeing much more of it in the future.
Lit with one soft box camera left.
3 frame HDR merged in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.... no textures though.
Bg is a piece of black velvet.
I do like the darkness and probably prefer the landscape orientation of this one.

Thanks for dropping by.
Mods and constructive critique very welcome.

Love the jaunty orange string, which matches the bare wood on the case. Super.

The orange string works so well with that fabulous box.
I'd love that prop myself.

Super job and I just wonder just how many props you must have collected so far...

The only thought I had was putting your image with it's black background on to the site's black background allows the eye to wander away from the subject. A very thin white stroke around the picture will contain the eye. Just a thought.
