Pianoforte by Mark Worrad

“ For this challenge, I wanted a strong, graphic style image created by light and dark, rather than a diagonal ‘structure’ and a keyboard seemed to fit the bill. I only had a half sized keyboard so had to get in really close, with an 18mm lens touching the first keys. I played with light and reflectors to fill in the shadows. I’m very new and limited with Photoshop so I try to get things looking as good as I can in camera. I took a range of shots with various focus settings and apertures and selected the best ones for editing.”
