Q: Can I offer poster prints of my images for sell?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Shot with Robin Spohr in August 2007. This is shot with only the light from the chandlier above and behind her head. I was positioned partway down the staircase behind her. She is grazing at herself in a mirror that messures aproximately 5 foot across, nearly 8 foot tall and about 200 years old.

This was a JPG capture on a Canon 5D with a Canon EF 24mm f2.8 lens @ f2.8 Exposure was ISO 1000 @ 1/85 sec. Hand held no flash.

Levels were adjusted in PS and a small amount of "Diffused Glow" filter was added to increase the contrast and take away some of the finer details near the center of the frame. Hopfully focusing the eye more on the overall composition. The fliter also worked to increase the SPECTACULAR light that bounced off the crystals and prizims of the antique light fixture that was mounted almost directly over my head. I was told this magnificent fixture was built in the early years of the 20th century.

    Scott Anderson said (24 Jan 2008):

    Thanks to everyone that has commeted so far. The 24mm on my 5D [ with it's full frame sensor ] was just about the only combination that would have worked here. A 20D, 30D or 40D at 1.6x or even a 1Dn with a conversion factor of 1.3x wouldn't have worked. From the lens surface to the railing behind her feet was less that 2 feet.....maybe 1/2 meter, or so

    I am honored by how powerful the response to this shot has been. I have to admit....I was a little scared that it might not fit in on this venue. I am so very glad it was accepted and appreciated by everyone. I consider this to be one of the very best works I have captured so far in my career. Your favoriting it and all the positive comments bring me great joy.
