[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my probably most beloved object in our house. For the meaning of it I even share a greater love. Before I started doing Yoga my thoughts were: "This is for a bunch of strange minded people!" After trying myself I'm so happy to have found this wealth of knowledge and peacefulness which I try to share with you today.

Finally I got the new cam and this is the first real attempt before reading the thick manual. I am happy to share my experimental struggling on my photographic road with you. Take a look at my "studio" setup in the workshop.

Yours, Jan

Persevere and you will succeed.

You get my two points for sharing the setup in WS! Very encouraging! :) As for the pic: the top lighter part detracts the viewer's attention from the Omm sign, but this is not necessarily bad, and it may not be a problem for other viewers. Thanks for sharing!

I THINK YOU HAVE TOO MUCH KNOWLEDGE OF OM SHANTI, IT IS GOOD FOR YOUR PHOTO AND ALSO KNOWLEDGE OF OM SHANTI.

REGARDS,
YOGESH

Guten Tag Jan

It looks like '30'. I like the effect of the grain & noise. The background looks like ink saturated blotting paper. Lighting & sharpness are excellent. Good work!

Hari OM...Hari OM...

This one on the other hand shows a very exciting composition. This is poster material. With such lovely light in the second and third layer. Very strong inded.

creative solution, have you tried working with reflected light? Many things can be used as reflectors, from white sheets, to gold paper, to aluminium foil(kitchen), to a piece of styrofoam..., M, (*_*)

It was really interesting to look at your 'studio'. How simple, but how effective. It has given a wonderful light across this subject and I like the way the background is shaded also. Very nice effect indeed.
Cheers Joan
Thanks for visiting my photo.

I really love the texture of the background here and the gradients of light and shadow and tones are just wonderful. Excellent simple shot and compo with the calligraphic statuette at the corner of the frame. Good with the lighting coming in from the left onto the object, which is seems to be positioned "facing" the light source. This really communicates the spiritual and light message of the photo. Maybe I would crop a couple of centimeters off the top since the amount of negative space above is just a little too much. But really excellent the way you conveyed the mood and message with such a simple shot. Good exposure and shine on the statuette too. I have never tried Yoga at all but I have heard it feels rejuvenating to use it everyday. TFS!

Hi Jan
Power packed shot (literally!). I like the soft golden streak of light just in line with the symbol 'OM' and the rest of the background texture and color gives an enchanting look...
Good that you are a Yoga fan, surely you must have gained a lot of health and sanity in life.
I hope to follow soon friend :) Good job with the shot.
Congrats and thanks for sharing the studio setup workshop...very useful ;)
Cheers!
