For the metal and glass assignment I had glass. The colors in the glasses are supposed to be representative of things that can be put in drinks, like date rape drugs. I wanted to try and bring attention to the fact that there are high statistics of sexual assault on college campuses. Many drugs that are used for things like date rape are easily combined with alcohol, which is why I chose the wine glasses.
I realized after the fact when I was looking on my computer that the background on my photos actually came out grey and looked completely different than on my camera. I need to be more conscientious of looking at the histograms like Rita has said. I also don’t think that I did as good a job as I would have liked on bringing out those dark side on the bright field background and should have tried harder to eliminate that horizon line. I felt that I lost some of the glass on the background as well, right in the stem of the glass.
