White Starfish

I let the beauty of the materials lead me. It's like having a secret invisible magician friend.

The background is plaster of paris on a wallboard. You have to work fast. Tim spread the plaster down and I went along after him adding the circles and some additional textures. This image was photographed in my natural light tent with a scratched up mirror placed in the direct sun outside the tent to pop some hard light onto the starfish. In Photoshop I worked in channels to refine the contrast without shifting the color. I'm just getting into channels. My friend Win got very excited when I told him about my white-on-white project and he spontaneously poured out technical information that has revived my relationship with the universe. I'm loving this project. I'm so so so grateful to William Waldron whose exquisite photograph in Elle Decor originally inspired me.
