Afrodite NF Photo 121021    

I bought this little statue a while ago for the sole purpose of photographing it. But this one is truly white and almost impossible to get a good shot at. Tonight I thought I give it another try. I put it with a black background below the lamp over my sink. For this shot I used the White Balance setting for Shade and no flash. It gave me a rather nice color I think. The shot is not enhanced.

I set this post up early as I want to join in Mandarin Orange Monday. But linky will open at 9.00 as usual.

  1. Your Aphrodite statue is gorgeous with the glow from the lamp making it orange. I know that in the natural color it is also a beautiful work of art.

  2. I am so pleased that you did that...posting early for MoM. Thank you:))) She is a lovely statue and it was interesting reading about how you took the photo. And its nice to be able to take advantage of the glow that lamps give - so often i get glows where i don't want them (like my jewellery pics). She actually looks like she is glowing inside and the light has made her look like she is made of something soft, like wax, don't you think.
    A beautiful shot and thanks again for the special trouble you went to in order to join MoM:)

  3. Lovely statue and image! Have a great week ahead!

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
