4 out of 5 by PeterBusser


Small (16.4" x 21.4")

Available to buy on…

I won’t upload any more than three images. The result of the small series will be visible online on my website. I’ll add the address in this description and in a journal when it’s there.

Why the title? It’s a row of five glasses. But I can see only four. Can you find the fifth one?

Proud to tell you: no processing other than conversion to b/w and slight cropping. No adjustment to brightness and constrast. That goes for the series.

    I do see the fifth one Peter. What a great shot…..I would LOVE to know all the technical details…..pleassssse :)

  • I guess the monitor of my laptop isn’t that great… I’ve used a Sony A700 with Minolta 50mm F2.8 macro lens. Settings: F10, 1/200, ISO 100. Camera in manual mode. Lighting: studio flash head (400 Ws on 1/16 output), fired with a radio trigger. Setup: glassed on a black piece of foam card. Used another piece as a background. Positioned the softbox directly behind the background, facing the camera. Glasses are positioned in a row. Now it’s all a matter of find the right position to shoot from. Post processing: B&W conversion and slight cropping. I you’d like to see a picture of the setup, let me know…

    I love the composition of this – although seemingly a simple thing you’ve managed to get the perfect proportional fall off in height at the top of the glasses vs. the rise in each one at the base of the stem. To this you can add the wonderful symmetrical lighting which works so beautifully. Great work Peter.

  • I read your comments and went silent for a while… thanks for you thoughtful comments, John! Much appreciated! Words like these make it so interesting to share work on the bubble.

  • Big smile and loud laugh :-). Thank you, thank you! The whole shoot didn’t take longer than 20 or 25 minutes. Am enjoying the imacpt of it for over a week now!
