Assignment #25: Empty Bowl

edited September 8, 2007 in Assignments
Phew, crowd control was a toughie..

Let's do something simpler this time. I suggest we shoot ourselves some bowls.

One or many, metal, pottery, wood, tupperware - just get some bowl in the frame and make it your primary subject.

As always: fresh pictures, moderate post-processing.
For the rest of the basic rules and index please check out this sticky.

Let's get some bowls! :-) :wink

    Here are my first efforts, I'm not sure they truly meet the brief as I've left the lids on to add some colour...

    The bowl at our right is a small example of some 6 or 7 we have which came from Macau and are about 80/90 years old.
    The other bowl, which has been from my father in law, is also some 80/90 years old. When he was a baby, his mother used to bath him in there.

    A crystal bowl at my parent's house. I gonna try to shoot more during the week. Shot hand-held, and with a built in flash. Not the optimal set up, but it came out kinda decent.

    11doh.gif I was so concentrated on getting the bowl to stay there that I didn't think to look at the countertop! Thanks.

    Nikolai.

    I would like you to tell me if what I shot are not empty bowls: the empty white paint bucket and the concrete barrel.

    According to http://dictionary.reference.com/search?db=dictionary&q=bowl a bowl is a "a rather deep, round dish or basin, used chiefly for holding liquids, food, etc."

    In this sence, a bowl is what I shot. Am I wrong ? ne_nau.gif

    I think "round" (or rather "rounded") is a somewhat defining characteristic of a bowl.

    For more research, check out the wikipedia article on bowls:

    Welcome to the Class!clap.gif
    Thank you for your entry! Nice set of definitely empty bowls! thumb.gif

    I would suggest next time to exclude the light source (window) from the frame by shooting parallel to the window as opposed to into it.. Just a thought...deal.gif
