Figure and form; an experiment with light, shape and texture

I have been experimenting with figure and form, shape and light; here my lady is standing in front of a sheet of thin white paper, with the light behind her. during processing I added a textured rock layer.

Where ever I go I will shoot small detail pictures of stone walls, bricks, stucco, anything that could be an interesting texured layer and can be added to photos.

I am interested in your thoughts on my experiment, your comments would be appreciated.

this and other photos are available at jmeyersforeman photography.

Submitted for the UE’s Weekend photochallenge “brick”  Not sure how it will be interpreted, or accepted as brick work, what do you think?


circular staircase in stone

I have always held a certain fasination for circular staircases, not sure why. Maybe it is the idea of sliding down the banister, or maybe it is the workmanship that goes into building them.  In this case a beautiful stone carved staircase is a remarkable example of craftmanship.

Maybe it is the straight and curved lines forming a pattern that is almost hypnotic, definitely peaceful, they remind me of a seashell.
