Photo of the Week 129

Photo of the Week 129
It's another Friday once again.  It's almost the weekend and it's time for a quick break.  How about checking out some beautiful fine art photography to brighten up your day a bit?  This week, we've picked a special surprise photo for you.  This week, we've chosen a low key photograph of a guitar for your viewing pleasure.

Here's another photograph which comes from the line of musical instrument pictures taken for a music academy.  This photo is a bit different from the rest of the series in that it features some human hands playing the guitar in addition to the instrument itself. 

I got the idea to try photographing the instrument with someone playing it just to try something different.  It wasn't difficult to get a volunteer to pretend to play the guitar.  I got the shot set up and then took the picture.

The next challenge was deciding what to do with the shot.  I didn't like it how it was originally in raw form.  While, yes, I do process my photos, I sometimes have to alter them more than expected.  This particular photograph was one such picture.

When I pulled the photo up for processing, I decided to try and go for the low key look.  It also decided to try black and white with this photo.  I didn't like having part of the volunteer's face in the photo.  Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, I was able to blacken out the areas which I didn't want exposed.  What was created was this beautiful low key picture of hands playing the guitar.
