The Ring In The Book – The Heart Of The Matter
Here’s an interesting experiment that I decided to try.
I had seen this done before, but I discovered that with some adjusting of the position of the light, you could not only get the heart in the ring shadow but a heart in the larger light. This photo and the one that follows have almost no post processing done with the exception of a crop and some color tone, but the heart light is right out of the camera. I used a large hand held work light that you can get at any hardware store, like Home Depot. The light was shined almost directly behind the ring at a relatively high angle. The camera was stopped down 2 full stops to black out the areas outside the heart.
This one is the same photo as above, but I took it into photoshop and added the flare on the crown of the ring. Not sure if I like it better or not, but I decided to include it for reference. What do y’all think?
