Special upload for Valentine’s Day!

Focal length 50mm
ISO-200
Aperture f/1,8
Shutter 1/20 sec.

Nikon D60 with Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D

Shot in manual mode, no flash fired, on a tripod.

I used a sheet of black foam on which I drew a heart and punched small holes along the outline. I then pushed a LED Christmas light bulb through each hole, in order to create a heart of light. I placed everything on a dark fabric on the floor, with Scrabble letters on a plexiglass about 0,5 m above (18 in.).

Processed in Lightroom 3 (levels, curves, hue and saturation) then used Photoshop CS4 to clone out the worst of the scratches on the plexiglass. Also selectively desaturated the lights and applied this texture of mine to make it look less like Christmas.

    Opps sorry I see you don’t want banners on your page my mistake. Apologies and thanks for the mention and link.

    Cheers Peter

  • No problem, Peter, I don’t mind at all, and I only have to remove them after all. My problem is that I feel uncomfortable doing so without giving notice because a lot of people do like banners and I don’t want to hurt any feelings… :-) Thank you for being so understanding!
