  1. #1

    Default Crystals and Lights







    These are crystals which are placed on lighting platforms. Any comments appreciated.

    Are these display items in a showcase ? or it is a still life arrangement ?

    These actually belong to a friend. For the 2nd and 3rd photos, we placed them in a corner of a book shelf and put a piece of paper behind. For the 1st one, she had a small reading light in her room. The other things you see are the decorations she has on a display shelf near the reading light. We just re arranged stuff around.

    I think #2 is weird. There is no focus in the picture. Perhaps if it was supposedly to be like more abstract, but the crystal in the foreground distracts.

    crystal usually is a small item, and its difficult to shoot.

    the aim of the picture should have given the viewer the feel of ...crystal clear...crystalline..transparent yet solid with some sparkle. Similar to shooting ice cube.

    the shots look chapalang. (pardon my language). If there's inherent beauty in the crystals, it doesn't show. Perhaps some shots in better lighting?

    In case it wasn't clear, I was going for the light and reflections not the crystals themselves.

    then the title is wrong. it should be light and reflection.

    #1 yellow lighting background and the crystal combination don't look striking to me

    #2 The crystal in front don't really give me a abstract feeling... maybe I am not a arty person

    #3 if it shows the full reflection maybe will be better. Reflection seems a little dull tho... doesn't catches attention.

    Just my 2 cents...

    maybe if you angle some lights through the crystal, the effect and perspective would be different?
