Thanks. I mentioned I didn't know if it worked because it wasn't really "planned". I just saw nice light from my window and decided to hang the 4C from my milk frother cup. For me, "fine art" needs to be at least somewhat pre-planned for a certain aesthetic, rather than haphazard.
For example, this shot was pre-planned:
Oblique, minor backlit lighting is coming from a large windowed building during the late afternoon.
The surface is a marbled piece of brown granite, with a concrete wall with rivets in the backdrop.
A large shade of trees sits to camera left, so there's contrast.
I wanted to put a little bit of fill to soften the shadows, but I forgot my reflector.
Woodcans is like a world class magician - he's a great illusionist, who never tells!
(Many of his shots have fantastic abstract backgrounds that are seemingly impossible to reverse engineer.)
Here's my guess at what he's doing with this shot... (Click to show)
