Some recent violin shots.
Thanks for the kind words.
Taking pictures of violins is kind of hard. When not in use these are babied away and stored in their case. This particular one is from the late 1780 made somewhere in Italy but definitely not a strad from Cremona. The owner is a concert master and he needed an urgent washroom break and asked me to watch out for his interment while he is away for a minute.
Of course I could not resist the opportunity and slightly arranged the violin, pulled out my camera and made a few shots. Artificial lighting was terrible so it had to be either B&W or some manually set white balance.

The second shot is of the same violin in use. The focus was on the point where hand is touching the fingerboard and it is a lucky shot.
