Or maybe this should be called “messing around with an old key” because that’s what it is…. This old church key must be around one hundred years old, and opens a very heavy wooden door. These were all taken on a fairly quiet drizzly day, wandering around trying to get some inspiration.
All shot on a Canon 60D with a Fotodiox EF to OM adaptor and the ever amazing Zuiko 50mm f1.4 at maximum aperture. All taken at around 40 cm – closest focus – the tiny depth of field and lovely bokeh complement the subject nicely. The background is the sill of a church window, with soft light filtering down from above. The toning is done in DXO filmpack.
Same subject – lower angle. I tried several shots moving the focus point back and forth, but this one seemed the best.
Finally one casting a slight shadow.
Just goes to show inspiration can crop up from anywhere!
All images shot for the book cover market – hope you like them.
Agreed, the contrast of textures and the shadow play are excellent. Especially love that final shot.
Hello Jana – good to hear from you.
I’d thought the first shot was the strongest – so it’s good to hear a contrary view!
I agree with Jana, leads you in and beyond.
I prefer the last one as well. Would look very good on the book cover.
