“The art director at Venice (FL) Magazine had assigned a photo essay on the theme of ‘light’ for the fall issue. However, when press time snuck up on the staff and they found their photo stock a bit thin for the final spread, I was asked to step in and get a few shots of my own. With no time to go out exploring, I decided to get resourceful with stuff from around the house. I found that with my aperture at F4, this simple back yard set-up of an old paper lantern string in the foreground with blue Christmas lights just a few inches behind, offered the perfect range of depth, as well as hue.
“After the shot ran as the full-page opener for the essay, I had APC produce it as a 36" gallery wrap. Their ability to reproduce the depth of the saturated black background and brilliance of the foreground elements, made this rather spartan composition a success.” – Max
