Close-up detail of the antique loom in the attic of historic Bulloch Hall, in downtown Roswell, GA.
This was a simple still life image of pears and some parchment paper. It ended up being chosen as the 2011 Photograph of the Year for the Roswell Photographic Society, the largest photography group in the state. It is also one of my best-selling images.

Another studio image produced for a photography contest...the theme was "flowers." I wanted something different from the outdoor closeups that I knew would be so popular with the other photographers. This won 2nd place.

"Chiaroscuro" is a technical term used by artists and photographers for using contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects such as the human body, or in this case, pears. I purposly arranged the lighting to get the brightest areas to contrast directly with the lightest areas in order to create a sense of three dimensionality to the image.
