Syrup (#28667)

Second post of the day but for good reasons! I completely forgot to make a Chronicles post last Tuesday, also I’m testing posting time vs. likes and didn’t want to leave too big a gap between posts.

IMG_8667I was really running out of photo subjects (as you’ll also see in next week’s post…). The mug and syrup were on top of my amp for ‘some reason’ so I decided to have a little fun with composition. Seeing as these are two very very dull subjects I tried to use all they had to offer.

To make the photo more dynamic and interesting I balanced the lid on the can and supported it a little with the mug. The syrup dripping from the spoon was another element which also balanced the shiny texture of the can, which I in turn emphasised in post-processing, along with the colours of the photo, by complementing the yellows with some blue toning of shadows and reducing the saturation of other colours, though the scene was quite monotone to begin with.
