My first Weekly Assignment entry. . . .

The refraction of light through a whisky glass onto speckled paper. . . . (I made the image early afternoon today, so the "whisky" was coffee diluted with water.)

Nath, I'm listening to "Prairie Gold" as I type this. Welcome to the Weekly Assignment. I really like your abstract entry - good luck.

Thanks, James! It feels really good to get involved with the forum.

I hope you liked "Prairie Gold"; my recent songs are a bit different--but I haven't got round to recording them yet.

Glad you like the refraction image. As for luck . . . after seeing your entry and the others, I think I'll need it!

Really like the abstract look, would have had no idea how you took the pic if you hadn't explained. Good Luck on your first entry.

Thanks, mihunter62!

For this image I set a whisky glass partially filled with diluted coffee on or near the edge of a piece of speckled paper laid flat on a table and turned out the overhead light (though there was still natural light coming in through windows). I had a Pentax M 50/1.4 with a small extension tube mounted on my K-5 with the aperture set to either f/4 or f/5.6 (the K-5 doesn't record such things with anything older than A-series lenses).

I handheld the K-5 in my right hand, and in my left I had a mini Maglite pointed down at about a 60 degree angle through the glass. I moved it around until I got an pattern that really struck me, focused on the speckles in the paper inside the middle fluted portion of the refraction, and got a few exposures. This is the one I liked the best, and it's full-frame. I adjusted the color balance, contrast, and other parameters in Lightroom to get this image.

It sure was fun creating this one; I'm glad you like it!

Nath

Nath,
Thanks for the explanation, this really helps me think of other applications of the same idea.
