A short post this morning as I have a dental appointment in a little while and my mouth does not feel very good. I had a late meeting and after the meeting I either chipped a tooth and exposed a nerve or I lost the only filling I have.
Jeanne found some of my camera collection. I think there is more than what she found but this will get me started on my project. This is just the first effort to see what I needed to do. I shot this with a Nikon D3 | Nikon 105 mm 1:1 Macro f2.8 lens | one Nikon SB800 strobe flash.
I used two white foam boards with a black one for the base. Processed the RAW file in Lightroom 4 and finished it off using Nik’s Silver Effects Pro 2.0. Next I will play with the lighting and perhaps use a studio strobe. I think there is a lot of things I can do to get the look I have already in my mind.
The camera is a Brownie Flash Six – 20 camera. It was introduced in 1946 and had a production run until 1955. It used 620 roll film and retailed for a whopping $6.00.
Considering how little time I spent on this image I’m not unhappy with this first result. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Tuesday. Be careful.
