Glass: its own world
When a blog reader mentions a specific area of art or photography that she or he likes, I think about that and, if possible, try to do a specific blog on the subject. Such was the case a couple of weeks ago when my sister-in-law said that the "fantasty in ice" images from a previous blog reminded her of glass. As it happens, she loves glass in any shape or form. I, too, find glass fascinating, amazing, and mysterious, and had planned to experiment with glass and my camera. What better time to start than on an overcast day rendering reflections from numerous directions.
Using a white sheet on a laundry rack (truly high tech) as a reflection device, I set up seven wine glasses and shot from a variety of angles.
In this tighter image, the glass appears to be molten, one glass pouring into the other.
Cropping an image can also achieve a certain rhythm and feel.
As I crop and center another photograph, the reflections on the glass create a world of their own.
Through the process of zooming and cropping, the reflections become totally abstract, revealing yet another world.
Getting lost is just another road to discovery...
until next Monday,

Lovely, sensual images of flirtatious, posturing stemware. The current blizzard conditions make me vulnerable to glasses full.
