PENNY A TUNE

By keithh  
Lighting via two 2700k LED bulbs and a 19thC oil lamp.

I like still life images to suggest a story to the viewer.

thanks for looking in.

Ok so far Frank. I've been experimenting with cheap quick set ups and these are a tenner each. The 27k rating appears to be correct and so far i haven't had any problems.

Cheers you lot

Five pence a tune just doesn't sound right.

You know how much I love these Keith, only real adverse comment, is the Music score looks like its straight off the printer and lightly screwed up. Been thinking on similar lines, and received some hand made cotton paper, can I get it through the printer tho!

The music is straight out of the folder of violin music that I bought at a boot sale. Wink

The brickwork is similar, yeah. But the music isn't inkjet printed its published sheet music from a cotton bound book of dances and reels from the 30s. As the busker is being paid in 'old pennies' there is no reason why the pages should be aged or overly distressed. Smile

It's the right hand sheet that doesn't quite look right, could it be the lighting is a little hard/ harsh, particularly set off against the diffused backdrop of the cloth liner, so it makes it "pop" just a bit too much?

Anyway still love the image, as the composition is so well thought through.

Did the moths fly out of the pocket when you dug deep for those coins? Love the touch of the flat cap, you can take the man out of Yorkshire.....
