A Chair by the Door

The latest assignment in BeStill 52 was to shoot a backlit image of a chair in front of a window. I was stymied at first, because our windows are all tinted here to protect us from the Arizona sun, creating a difficult lighting situation for photography.  Then I remembered the frosted front door window, which has un-frosted portions, letting in a bit of natural light.

  3. Beautiful light! I wish you could ship some of that Arizona sun to Ohio. 🙂 The chair and pine cones are perfectly placed, love the depth of field.

  5. I’m always drawn to pine cones, and I love them sitting on the chair with the door and decoration blurry in the background – so pretty!
