Silver wedding shoes

This was taken with the flash off camera to my left using a sync cord attached to the camera and flash. Lightroom was used to 'wash out' the corners and to create an interesting tone to the image. Photoshop CS2 was used to create the sparkles on the diamonds and to 'erase' the brand name on the shoes.

As I mentioned in previous posts, I highly recommend experimenting with off camera flash. An inexpensive way to start is to purchase a sync cord for your camera to flash set-up.

Another method is to use a flashlight and point it at your subject. This creates an amazing look too. If you use a flashlight, you might need to color correct in your photo processing software or use color gels over the flashlight.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. Edith Lovejoy Pierce
