An attempt at abstract photography.  Taken in Washington, D.C.  Not really happy that I left off part of the bottom.

Photo One of the Light and Jewelry Series: The Bead Necklace on a Fern

Photo One of the Light and Jewelry Series:  The Bead Necklace on a Fern

Before starting a lesson (which I will probably do tomorrow) or introducing a totally new idea (such as my progression in food photography), I would post the start of another black and white series: a high-contrast, light-based series all focusing on jewelry taken around November of last year. All these images where taken with a Canon DSLR (of which kind, I continuously forget), and edited with the program known as GIMP. My favorite thing about this image is the pattern the fern leaves on the necklace. I tried to bring out all the little nuances reflected off the jewelry by increasing the contrast to 100%, and then turned down the brightness. Anyone can do this in their photos if they just have some kind of photo-editer. If you are pressed for money, GIMP is free and quite simple to use. Hope you have a great day, and put this mini-lesson to good use!
