Private Investigation - B&W & another Lily

B&W's are my all time favorite ways to show my pictures.

This was an experiment B&W. I used an old typewriter that we had in the garage, coffee/mug from kitchen, one of our newspapers and magnifying glass - My dirty habit cigarette, and added the smoke with PhotoExpression as the real smoke did not show in the original shot.



This is another one of my lilies - taken outside.



Hope you like these as well. I have only been taking digital pictures since late May of 2003.

Nice! Especially well done with the Private Eye shot... the lighting, smoke, the whole bit looks really good.

Yeah, great private eye shot... what did you do to set it up? What inspired you to take that shot?

Thanks for the comments. How did I set this shot up and why? It all started when my DH decided he would clean up his garage (again!) and we came across the old typewriter and we started remembering about the old Private Eye shows we used to watch on TV. I stated that it would be really neat if I could create a scene of some kind based on some of those old shows and it kinda evolved from there.

I have a table in my computer room, which I used for this shot. It took me several pics before I got this one right. The only problem I did have was getting the smoke from the cigarette to show up on the picture. In the program "Photo Explosion Deluxe" (will do a review on this later) which I use quite often, has a cloud effect which I used for the smoke. It actually turned out better than I expected. The newspaper article about the murder deliberations was in the paper we got the day before and was actually on a real murder trial of someone I grew up with a long time ago.

So, having on hand, the typewriter, white coffee cup/coffee, magnifying glass, cigarrettes/ashtray and an old piece of flooring to look like wood, I was all ready to start trying to set up some kind of scene. Immagination is a great thing to have in this kind of situation.

It is amazing how you see thing differently and how many ideas you can come up with when you start to do photography. My mind is always reeling with thoughts and ideas.

I am just having so much fun and am getting a whole of of learning from sites like this one.

I think I will stop right now before I bore anyone with my rambling.

Thanks again for the comments, I had fun doing this scene.

Congrats, excellent job. Imagination plays a big role in photography, as you said... a lot of people don't realize that...
