Blue Moon

More photos of Blue Moon: The photogram of a sphere, cyanotyped into a body of silk threads that are attached to and sewn into two acrylic glasses.

Capturing the luminosity within such a sculpture is just one of those things. The camera 'perceives' an image that looks quite different to what my eyes see - as if it had its own mind how to 'translate' luminosity, shades and depth into 2-D.

So, using just November's natural light filtering through the studio window, Blue Moon became the object to familiarize myself with the manual settings of our camera and thus improve my 'translation' skills.
