Wine Glass & Sun – Blog #6

This unique wine glass is from a wonderful store in Tiburon called Junella’s Hidden Treasures. The glass was indeed a treasure that I couldn’t live without!  For days it was on my mind, I was constantly thinking about ways to photograph it and do it justice. During a  meditation the vision of the image came to me. The creative process is so stimulating, it’s a huge part of my life. But, one of the hardest things in the whole process is to actually produce the images that come to mind. On the other hand, it can be one of the most rewarding aspects of the creative process. The image you see here is exactly what came to me in my meditation.

The first step was to cut a round hole in black paper.

The second step was to hang the black paper behind the setup with the glass.The white square was placed there to bounce light into the glass.

The orange sun is made by aiming a strobe at the cutout hole from behind. The color was created with the use of colored gels in front of the strobe.
