My Dad’s challenge this week was simply ‘music’. So I turned to my violin which, I hate to admit, has been neglected in the last few months so it was nice to give it some attention!
I wanted to create a slightly more abstract photograph, so experimented with close up shots of various elements of the instrument. Eventually I went for this shot, focusing on the bridge in the foreground but giving a glimpse of the rest of the instrument into the distance. I created two layers with the top layer black and white, and the bottom layer remaining in colour. I really like the subtle hint of the brown wood, while trying to preserve the atmosphere created by the black and white effect.
