Out Of The Darkness


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure this mib is from Jabo's 'March Madness' run.

The photo is my latest experiment with the HDR techniques described in another post.

Although it's no 'work of art' I consider it a huge success since this is one DARK marble.

Originally I was hoping that the multiple-exposure process would help with certain

marbles that for no particular reason are just very difficult to get a good shot of. But in

this case we're talking about a marble which in-hand pretty much looks black, and isn't

very impressive regardless of lighting conditions. So it's pretty thrilling to have found a

way to show all the great stuff buried inside! ( :

I used a polarizing filter on this shot, and think I'll probably make that a habit from now on.

It greatly reduces any reflection of the sky, and seems to let the marble pattern come through more clearly. ( :
