This week's photo challenge from 52Frames.com was Intentional Color Palette and led me to take a photo I had thought about for some time, but didn't have the motivation, inspiration, or whatever to take. I took a bunch of wine corks and laid them flat in a plastic storage bin and placed a wine glass with a serving of Pinot Noir from one of my favorite vineyards, Willamette Valley Vineyards, flat on top of the corks. I used a Rotolight led light to the right of the camera to light the image.
I liked the way this came out and it fit the image I had imagined before shooting. I took some additional photos, but this was the one I chose to upload to 52 Frames. One of the others I shot I used a corkscrew as an additional prop, but just didn't like the image as much. Let me know if you recognize any of the vineyards.
I shot this image with my Sony a6000 with the 35mm, 1.8 lens. My favorite part of this was that when I was finished I got to drink the prop while editing the photos! Next week's challenge is Pairs, or anything that comes in two. Cheers!
