Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM: First Impressions with Walter Arnold » SDIM0248
For this shot I borrowed some brushes from local Water Color artist Sterling Edwards, who also works in acrylics. He lent me some of his brushes as well as a painter’s pallet to photograph for this shoot. I laid a few of the brushes on the pallet next to a colorful dollop of ink. After spending a good deal of time lighting the brushes with traditional lighting techniques, I broke out my trusty mag lite flashlight and used it to provide a very focused light from the side which made for a dramatic and textured image.
