Today I taught a Continuing Education Photography class for Mount Royal University. During the on location class at the new National Music Centre at Calgary’s Studio Bell, I tasked my students to find interesting examples of light. I often will take my own photos while the students practice their various skills.
I decided to use a guitar as my muse. I wanted to encourage my students to look at light and how it can help create an interesting image. Using a very shallow depth of field (my 50mm @ f:1.8) I focused on the strings, midway up the neck. I tried to draw the eye into the image with the string and neck detail.
The image was also shot with the built-in Sepia monocrome filter on my Canon 5D MarkIII.
