Blimey that didn't take long..!!...Smile This thumbnail stood out from the others on the page. The lighting is superb.. Do you have a book on wine to put in the pile?? Just a suggestion..

A really 'professional' image. I agree with Miz about the lighting. The darkness of the books adds some mystery.

I agree with the previous admiring comments, makes me realise just how much I still have to learn. The lighting is magical and I think that the creases in the velvet actually add to the effect via the slight shadows.

wow thanks guys ... you're so encouraging .. Grin

Does anyone have suggestions on how to increase the light very slightly on the spines of the books without losing the warmth? I thought also of another candle but didn't want light sources in the pic ...

How about a reflector???

Try using a piece of mirror to reflect hard light on to the spines.

You have produced a very moody still lige - great image.

You could even distort the red light in the wine into a heart using Photoshop Liquify tool to make a valentine card image.

hey thanks - I shall do a bit of re-experimentation - and this time armed with a reflector ... not so much so that you can see all the titles but just to give a little more definition .. in fact I'll try both - a mirror and a piece of white card ...

Why not? A white card will give a little fill overall and a mirror can brighten a selected area up a little more.

Wondeful image! You efforts have paid off! I love the depth of colour, and I really don't think there's anything wrong with the creases in the velvet - IMHO it gives the shot that "something extra". Well done!

in fact before I joined ephotozine I wouldn't even have CONSIDERED doing something like this - but the info and the techniques sections, plus all the other members being so generous with their time and help since I've been here has taught me enough to start pushing my limits a bit further Grin (and no I don't have shares LOL)

Already a great atmospheric shot. You earlier
asked for any tips on how you could add more light on the book spines. I suggest that you
make a copy layer and then go into the Windows palette select, Info and with the eye dropper check out what reading you get from the book spines,you need to be in RGB, if you get reading of approx R30-G35-B40 this indicates that there is enough pixel
information to make adjustments but if you
get readings of say R4-G3-B5 it could not be adjusted in levels. What I now suggest is
use the free hand lasso tool make a loose
selection around the book spines,feather
pixels to 100 click, hold down control & H
this will hide the marching ants, now make your adjustments to lighten the spines when satisfied click ok. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE go fade in edit menu this gives you the oppertunity to refine yout choice on the amount of lightness required on the book spines. Please accept my apologies if I have presumed that you did not already no ths.

Thanks Steven - that's very useful and if I may I'll copy + paste that to my little 'techy' file Grin ... I'm also trying this week to do some experimentation to get a better light on the spines during the shoot .. my best way for a gentle light with the equipment I do have is to use the lightbox but to cover it with some fabric to get a softer light .. that seems to work in the shoot and I'm waiting to get them done so I can check against my 'shoot notes' ... Thanks a lot guys .. my learning curve is zipping up like anything !!

Just one more word and then I will shut up. As an ardent picture puzzle lover, I feel this picture would make a great puzzle. The dark colours of the back ground and the darker tones of the books would be a great challenge. So, you have more than just a great photo here.
Big Bri 15 16.1k United Kingdom
16 Jul 2003 2:35PM
Suzi - if it's a long exposure, you can use a torch to apply a little extra light to certain areas. We did it on my C&G course with varying degrees of success. I have Lee Frost book on low light photography and in one shot he has a reeeeeaaaaallly long exposure then walked around a building and flashed it something like 45 times to build up the picture on the film.

FANTASTIC picture btw.

Trouble with being away from this site for any period of time is missing loads of really good images. And this is brilliant Suzi ... I'm sure I can't add anything that hasn't already been said, except that I love the warmth and atmosphere of this. For me, it stirs really evocative feelings of something slightly ... esoteric and wizardly, I think ... or maybe I've read too many SF books ... Smile
Leo 14 46 9 England
21 Aug 2003 1:02PM
What can I say about this which hasn't been said already?'s a jewel! On the point of increasing the light fractionally, or by tiny stages. Forgive me if I'm teaching you to suck eggs...grin... but why not try the render/lighting effects in Photoshop, with a selection of the area you want to increase, feathering to suit..I find that so helpful in certain pics, quite amazing the effects it will give you Suzi.
SuziBlue 13 16.2k 10 Scotland
22 Aug 2003 1:07AM
Thanks Tanya and Leo Grin .. very kind. Oh and Leo - you're spot on with the tip about PS Grin but I don't have it currently and am using quite basic photo manipulation software. I've also been doing some more test shots with different reflectors and lighting levels and will post final results in near future .. I used an alternative in the wineglass for a while and so the effect was slightly different, but have now laid my hands on a suitable vintage heh heh and will do the final shoot soon Grin

Thanks for the comments - I really appreciate them. Thanks for dropping by Grin
Leo 14 46 9 England

So sorry Suzi, with the quality of your work I jumped to the conclusion you _did_ use Photoshop. Ahaa well, one day perhaps and it will compliment your work so well, when you do.

Hi Suzi

I do like the way that you have created this shot,the warmth and colour's are great and with the light of the candle through the top of the glass stem looks great.

g-3 13 4
27 Aug 2003 4:22PM
Hmmm ... not sure here. Ostensibly it's a good pic but somethin' just aint sittin' right! I think the uncontrolled(?) fairly harsh reflections on the glass are killing the mood.And there appears to be something 'loitering' behind the stem (not the candle). I find with this kind of arrangement it has to be meticulously random!! But overall the praise is deserved methinks :o)
SuziBlue 13 16.2k 10 Scotland
27 Aug 2003 8:09PM
Thanks Phil Grin and for dropping by ...

and thanks too G3 .. yes it is the candle holder behind the glass .. earlier in this thread I gave myself a slap on the wrist for having it show! but yes, I have been doing some further experimentation and just haven't got round to getting the best result posted ..

Like I say, it's been invaluable, this ephotozine resource .. I would never have considered doing anything like this shot previously, but it does inspire and encourage you to try new things ..

This photo is one of the best ive seen like the way the light of the glass contrasts with the dark items on the table adding to the warth and comfort of the drink . It also has an effective glow from the rflection in the glass . Well done this is a good display of flash and lighting techniques cleverly executed

Thanks very much indeed Gordon .. very kind words Grin .. in fact I didn't use flash on this .. there was a candle behind the glass (I redid the original for the October comp and got rid of the candle holder ..) and used a hint of lightbox to one side with some fabric toning down the light ... I don't have my shoot notes to hand right now but I have a feeling it was f5.6 and 70mm at 3 seconds .. I think!!

This is a well composed picture and lit nicely. One wee gripe should have ironed the backcloth!

Nice work and the responses from other readers back this up.

Backcloth? My gaze didn't get beyond the glass of wine (do you think I've got a problem LOL!)

Lovely image.

Super image, very moody. Think everything has been said, a reflector would add light to the books but I like the way it works as it is.

Ilona it was just pure chance that the candle light formed a heart in the wine .. happy coincidence!
