Other pictures from today’s shoot had a stronger suggestion of narrative than this one, but none caught my eye the way this one does.

And others were lined up better, with the camera more closely aligned with the pins than this one, but no others had the color variation or intensity of this one.

So this is it, I guess. Just a pretty picture with nothing really going on, and with a couple of warts to sort of distract from otherwise regular flow.

Like yesterday’s shot, the color in this was achieved by mixing light sources: a blue led light bar, bounced off of the red metal handle of its twin forming the key light, and a mini maglite shining straight down as a sort of fill, in a ratio of roughly 4:1.

I find the intensity of color that these two light sources spit out quite fascinating.

D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 Zomb-E Series, extended by 100mm. ISO100, 1/15, f/4. Minimal processing in Aperture.
