And now for something completely different. An unusual interior photography shot of the Chateau Spleen barrel store in Bordeaux, France.
I am not sure if this image works in my interior photography portfolio collection to be honest, but I am going to re-edit this image in Lightroom and Photoshop and see what I come up with.
I really like this image. It is picture of the internal art within the room. You have to stand exactly where I took this picture from, and the nine red triangles form themselves. I think this is brilliant, especially in a barrel store in a French vineyard.
The colours of the barrels add to the interest in this shot.
The reason I am not sure if this image fits into my portfolio is purely because of what the subject matter of this image is. I don’t have any other interior photographs like this one, so I will look at this when I have collated my set of 40 images. This is exactly why I am producing 40 images when I only actually need 30-35 images – it gives me a bit of flexibility and options.
So the image you see today is the original edit of this image, taken with my Canon 6D with Canon 8-15mm fisheye zoom lens, using the 15mm ultra wide but not circular fisheye lens.
The exposure was 1/80th second at F8, using an ISO of 640.
Tomorrow I will post my newly edited version of this image (it is Sunday after all so I am giving myself a bit of a break). As I am deferring this edited image posting I will write about each and every step of the processing I do in Lightroom and possibly Photoshop. I know what I want to get out of this image which I think Is a strong image with a good subject well composed (and captured technically well which I would expect).
