 A tissue paper would have made a fine defuser. 

 

 

Still ok.

Hi Dennis,

 

I can just see myself licking  a tissue sheet to get it to stick on the back of my phone...lol!! For what it is I'm perfectly fine with the High specularity. As photographers we always look for ways to make small source larger ones in order to lower contrast and control highlights.I guess this is just one of those cases where most will go "That was done with a cellphone?" Especially since the light bursts on the right make it look as though it was a multi source setup.

 

It was a good down and dirty setup to get the photo quickly. Lord knows if I had done this with my view camera I would still be  light(s), reflector cards, and camera around,,,hahahahaha!! (joking)

 

Thanks for the input...

Wow very well done and like Art the detail is amazing!!!

I can even read made in Croatia pretty cool considering they are in the World Cup finals.

Again very well done.

Hi Jim

 

I'm a bit shocked that a one LED source had that much influence. Its not like you get huge amounts of light to paint with.

 

Also thanks much

Was their any other artificial or daylight in the space when you were shooting ?

 

Two different light temperatures can cause problems...

Fluorescent flicker? I think Isee a touch of green on the right .

The mat is  a cool improvise, I like the look of it.  Jon Haverstick did something similar with a floor mat.  The Shop type, with the cross ridges on it, if I remember correctly.

 

I am amazed at the detail in the image for a cell phone.  It is impressive.

Hi Art.

 

The mat is a piece of floor runner which I bought about 20 years ago. Thought about using it when I was thinking up the composition/framing for the photo. I do think that level of detail can be attributed to the smallish nature of the flash the phone has. It produces some highly specular lighting with tons of highlights in the frame. I agree with you though. If I didn't know any better I would of not thought smartphone either.

 

 

Thanks much!
