May I ask what is eerie about this picture?

Remember, the light from the lamp only provides light to the pictures ( no light = no photograph ), if there is no subject, there's nothing to be scared about.... hence my question.

In terms of light and darkness, the whole photograph is left-heavy, since the brightest point of photograph is mainly on the left. TS need to think about composition, balance, and subject placement? If you need help, can search around or ask here? ( search first then ask bah ), there are quite alot of helpful resources on the net that deals with this.

Oh by the way, its "eerie".

Good attempt, but I feel like it's not dramatic enough. :)
Just my two cents. Also if there's like a white cloth near the lens, I believe it's for some funeral thingy cause i've seen these kinda lamps at weird locations around my estate too!

Ok, so I see a kerosene lamp. So?

Not eerie by any standards.

And there is not enough room to the left of the light.

And no, nothing jumps out at me that looks like a white cloth. Even if there is, your frame made sure it is not conspicuous.

And funerals are not eerie. They are emotional.

1) Try experimenting with different shooting angles. Could the lamp have told a different story if you were to shoot it from bottom?


2) In this case, the sephia PP could probably have destroyed the intended eerie effect.


3) Too little room on the left and too much space of the right. Do not restrict yourself to a few shots.. shoot as much as possible with the many compositions you could think of and choose the one that 'feels right'.
