Bedtime stories by m0nni Bedtime stories by m0nni
I shot Book of life last fall and have all this time thought about shooting a color version too. So today I played with a book and some lights in studio and here's one of the results In this shot I adjusted the whitebalance in raw conversion. Inspiration for the colors comes from `mnoo's work, I love the way she uses color :love:

Original colors can be seen in Stroy of Icaros

Lot's of love to ~ssundell who very patiently flipped the pages for me over and over again :heart:

thanks...i've tryed it so far lsat night at 5 second exposure, but those haven't been coming out to good, i'm, gonna try to make it a little faster, maybe even aroudn 1/60...out of curiosity, what shutter speed did you use for this? I'll keep experimenting for now and see what comes out good...

The exposure time was ½ seconds. I used a flash too to stop some of the pages. The blur comes from those that moved after the flash had fired :)

This is a pretty cool shot. I like the colors tweaked from the WB. It would be cool to see this from other angles. Perhaps rotating the camera counter-clockwise 45 degrees.

I didn't want the hand that's flipping the pages to show - that's why it's from this direction. Maybe I'll do it differently some day with the hand too (and some nice sleeves or something) Thank you for the comment :)

hmm, tässä värit ehkä vähän liian makeat mun makuun. tosi hieno liikkeen fiilis kyllä tässäkin. miten pitkiä valotusaikoja sä käytit näissä?
Reply
:iconm0nni:
m0nni Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2005  Professional Photographer
Molemmissa oli valotusaika puoli sekunttia :) Kameran pikkusalama oli toooosi pienellä mutta kuitenkin sen verran välähti että nuo sivut pysähtyi. Lisäksi yksi valo oli vasemmalla, toinen etuviistossa ja kolmas taustaa kohti (punaisella kalvolla).

I love colours too! This shots great, I like both with either colour combination, although the effect with the pages in this capture is the best one! Love the longer exposure! It gives a great softness to the image, and the colours suit the title 'Bedtime Stories' as they are childlike and playful!

The effet is a combination of long exposure and a small flash :)

Cool, I've wanted to try and experiment with long exposure. I only have a basic auto digi camera, maybe when I get my hands on a Nikon D7- I'll be testing out features like that :D (I can dream)

The colours are great, I really like blue against violet like this, and it's a very nice effect with the motion blur too. Really nice.
