I heart black and white! Graffiti, I heart you too. Camera : 20D Lens: 50mm 1.8 ISO: 200 APERATURE: 4.5 SHUTTER SPEED: Over 100 POST PROCESSING: Photoshop CS4 reduced saturation till all color is removed went into adjustment and made the diagonal line a slight S. Making the blacks blacker and the whites whiter.
This is my first ever post! I had built a little photo studio in my house right before joining this group, so I used the silhouette assignment as a chance to play around in the studio... literally. At one point, my cat decided to join in.
I really like how the 2D nature of a silhouette lets you compress depth into strange shapes. The gradients here are from the way the light was falling off, which I just color balanced towards blue.
I had a lot of fun, but there are still things left that I want to try!
