My round 17 partner Joanne Giguère offered this challenge…..
But i realise that there’s not much objects or still life in your stream. So i’ll push you this way if you don’t mind. Try to take an object or some objects that means something to you, that have a history that you can share and play around with the lighthing and the set up.
OK here goes Joanne 🙂 These two shots are definitely still life especially the 6′ grand piano. I had to play with the lighting a bunch and realize that I need to invest in some light boxes or umbrellas soon. The Taylor guitar moves a bit more. Besides my wife and family two things (other than photography) have been the most inspirational in my life and those are music and sports. It was not but 5 years ago when my tennis doubles partner and I were ranked #1 in US in our age and division when I had to have my elbow rebuilt thus ending a long and successful career that paid for college along the way. Golf has taken its place and I try to get 2-3 rounds in a week. I have posted sports pictures in the past so I decided to go the music route and combined it with Macro Mondays.
I always wanted to be a professional musician but learned early on it would not pay the bills 🙂 I play many instruments and have also built many (oh yeah – woodworking is another hobby). Piano was my first instrument and is still the one I always fall back on even today. My main instrument through school was the violin with the guitar not far behind. I have played in many orchestras and bands with a number of various instruments so music has been very good to me!
I think that is enough of a story for now and thank you for your challenge and a chance to revisit some great times!!
