Black Plantation Shutters
- A window shutter is a solid and stable window covering usually consisting of a frame of vertical stiles and horizontal rails (top, center and bottom).
- (Plantation Shutter) the name coined by Australian Timber Shutters in the 80s for their Australian style shutter with wide adjustable blades. Now a mostly generic term for timber shutters.
- A hinged cover or screen for a window or door, usually fitted with louvres
- Make (one's face, hands, and other visible parts of one's body) black with polish or makeup, so as not to be seen at night or, esp. formerly, to play the role of a black person in a musical show, play, or movie
- the quality or state of the achromatic color of least lightness (bearing the least resemblance to white)
- being of the achromatic color of maximum darkness; having little or no hue owing to absorption of almost all incident light; "black leather jackets"; "as black as coal"; "rich black soil"
- blacken: make or become black; "The smoke blackened the ceiling"; "The ceiling blackened"
This was taken in my studio at my house. My studio being a large bow window with plantation shutters, a kitchen chair, a silver/white reflector, and black poster board.
I kept the poster board in the shadow while I placed the violin in the window light. I exposed for the bridge, then reduced it by one stop. I sacrificed some color in the foreground, but it got my background totally black.
When or if I do it again, I think I will try for some more depth-of-field so at least the start of the fingerboard is in focus. Other than that, I am quite pleased with the way this one turned out.
