Light Paintings: Be My Valentine
(Click Photo to Enlarge)
This light painting features a number of items that my mother has given to me, including the wonderful Victorian button-up boot, the handmade lace petticoat it sits on, the gilded ceramic bowl next to it, and the string of pearls that spill out of the bowl. I decided to create a composition that looks as though a Victorian lady is preparing to go out for the evening to meet the man who sent her the Valentine. She has stepped away from her dressing table for a moment, to answer the summons of her mother, who wants to ensure her daughter will be properly chaperoned for the evening.
The Valentine card was created from a photo I took of a print in an antiques shop, which was also where I purchased the lace fingerless gloves. A handkerchief, a solitary rose, and a bottle of perfume complete the composition.
Think of items you have that perhaps your mother, father, or grandparents owned. What story could those items tell if I created a light painting of them for you?
Happy Valentines Day!
