Graphic examination of color, shape, line, light and shadow.
I sourced the nuts, bolts and background to ensure proportions and texture were consistent throughout the composition. I also painted and graphically arranged the hardware on a 45 degree angle to introduce pattern and depth.
A tilt of the lens standard on the camera ensured the entire image was in sharp focus to further emphasize the angular shapes.
Soft colors applied to rigid shapes creates a pleasing tension that highlights the beauty of geometric forms. The light and shadow play on the background creates a tactile surface that reinforces the interplay of light and shadow.
