Silent Strings

For several and various reasons, I had to take a hiatus from the blog posting, and so I decided to resume with this little image that I shot yesterday. About three days ago, I added a new reflector to my little studio lighting setup, called a "beauty dish". It is primarily used for portraits of the fairer gender, but is also useful for still life shots. Actually, when I was shooting this little setup, I thought that a few members of the Irish musicians group that I have had the pleasure of playing with in the last year, might possibly enjoy it....especially Sharon & Jim. Sharon is a wonderful violinist, and used to play with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra. After acquiring the violin from my late Father-in-Law, I am still trying to scratch out a few tunes myself, but so far, it appears to be a better prop for my photography than a musical my hands at least. Hope you enjoy it.
