Chat Noir

Challenged by Lisa ( @homeschoolmom ), this is my first Get Pushed attempt to do either a white on white or black on black photo. Choosing the darker option to start with, difficulties included finding a suitable black subject matter (an old wine bottle), black background (an old piece of fabric) and lighting (overhead with an old diffuser). Must make do with what one has, eh?!

Thank you for visiting! Peace
@homeschoolmom Hi Lisa, here's attempt number 1!

Nice! I always found black on black difficult. I think you nailed it.

well done - this is not easy!

This is fabulous, you’ve done a great job

Well done, you have nailed it with this shot

I really like this. These shots are surprisingly difficult to get right and you've cracked it. Fav

nicely done.

I can feel the texture. Good shot.
October 21st, 2020  
You definitely met that challenge successfully

I love this technique! We called it "zoning" back in the day. Making part of your subject disappear into the background was the goal. This is wonderful! My late professor would have given it an A+. =)

Cool wine bottle... nice job with the lighting.
October 21st, 2020

Lovely.

Hey, you've taken my username from another board! ( Chat Noir) Seems I'm a catty person wherever I go.
Beautiful soft highlights.

Well done!

I am in awe

Necessity is the mother of invention- or so they say- but those folks apparently did not know any photographers! I know many a photographer who "made do with what they had" and came up with some pretty clever ways to accomplish their goal- not out of necessity but just because they liked the challenge. Well done on the black on black!

Great capture
October 22nd, 2020  
Difficult challenge, but I think you nailed it. I can see the detail in the face and the background looks a true black.
October 22nd, 2020  
Nicely done, looks like a chocolate bunny to me!
October 22nd, 2020  
That looks hard to do, to get the right lightning. Cool shot
October 22nd, 2020  
Very cool capture...fav.
October 23rd, 2020  
Absolutely fantastic! Now I'm sorry I got rid of my cat bottles. Guess I will have to buy a couple more and drink the wine. 😉
October 23rd, 2020  
Another good one!
