Sunday Stills - Taming the reflections

Sunday Stills - Taming the reflections - Simi Jois
It started out as a lazy saturday morning, ...I sat down to enjoy my coffee. The gray clouds diffused the light...I was playing with a leaf, watching the highlights and shadows as I rotated it and placed it on the dinning table. I got a couple of black cards to block the excess reflections, played with different background and before I knew it, it had been four hours...When you love what you do, time seems to fly.

Stocking up groceries has been on my list for the last few days and I have been procrastinating, all I have in my refrigerator are some bell peppers, tomatoes and snap peas ....oh yes some spinach too. So my subject has been the onion.  I have been going over board with it, lol ... I'm not going to post all the images of the onion, posted one of them on a plate and the other in the glass bell. The onion is such a beautiful subject to photograph, specially with the artistic green shoots. There are so many textures, and layers in an onion ..

Here are a few images ... taming the reflections.

Reflections and highlights are very powerful in an image if used effectively, reflections can be mysterious, enchanting or disastrous. It is how you see them and use them.
