LX5 - Black Velvet (for Bruno)

The words "Black Velvet' mean different things to different people.

I have (for the time being) replaced my shiny black velvet background with a curved A2 sheet of matt black card. This works much better, giving a cleaner backdrop. I also found a more appropriate subject for this 'Black Velvet' study.

The Set-up

The Pour

The Settle

The First Taste

And the Second

All gone with the Third. Not bad!

Sometimes you just can't beat the black velvet!

Hope you enjoyed this project as much (sensibly) as I did!

All diffused window light, LX5 (Tripod + Self Timer), AP, ISO 80, f2.8, SS 1/25, -0.7EV
