Pearls.





"If my muscles hurt, it just means I've used them. If it hurts to walk up the stairs, it's just cause I've done it a hundred times to lay down next to a man who loved me. My face may have wrinkles, but I have laid under hundreds of skies on sunny days. I look like this, well, because I drank and I smoked and I lived and I loved and I screwed my way through a pretty damn good life. Getting old isn't bad. It's earned. "

as part of the assignment, we had to shoot on 4x5 trans. film. I used a Calumet large format camera and two broncolor strobes to light it. For this particular shot I used my 20d settings were ISO 100, f/11 at 1/125.

I love this shot. I think the pearls stand out very well and the selective focus was very nice. Good job.
