Kipling

Kipling. David Hayes, 2015.

"Be inspired by a still life painting..." That's how part of the prompt read. Hmmm... So I dug out all my old art history texts, and Googled "old masters still life paintings"...things like that. Decided to go with the all dark look, light from the left, Dutch masters sort-of-look....

Problem was that this type of set-up proved to be a devil to photograph! Too many contrasts between "whites" and "blacks". It took four separate tries and a reset before I had an image I was happy with! A true learning experience indeed. All good!!
