Twirl by Moonbeam13 Twirl by Moonbeam13
In true deviantArt fashion I'm deviating from my series, briefly, though not intentionally.

I was toying with my inspiration to shoot my umbrella superstition and after an hour of frustration with the boring state of the average umbrella.. lights were shining, umbrellas were spinning.. and the shutter was opened.

Experimenting with different concepts and ideas is one of the deep benefits of photography. I put a lot of myself into every shot and it connects with me on a very personal level. What fascinates me even more, is to hear your interpretations of it. Lesson learned today, 'Don't be afraid to play'

I had posted the black and white originally someone said the colour would be better. I had no intention of changing them up, the black and white strikes a chord emotionally I was just curious :)

My goodness, I love this!

The positioning, composition, blur.. It's all perfect. It looks haunting, almost.. I saw the color version, but it didn't do anything for me.. The black and white brings it personality and that trademark 'you' feel to the picture. It kinda gives me chills looking at it, because there's just something that makes this umbrella look like it has a life of its own.. I know, I'm strange.

Very few times have I ever looked at an image and felt the movement of it. I've never, ever seen a picture of an umbrella quite like this.. Thanks for sharing your eye with the rest of us, Danielle. :hug:

I really enjoy this, but I think it would have been a bit more emotionally impacting if it had been in color. I see it in bright reds and whites or yellows.

That's ironic because the lack of colour is what makes it personally hitting for me :)

Thanks for the input.

this is a wonderfully fun creation. who hasn't enjoyed spinning an umbrella? i think everyone has. but few have managed to capture the enjoyment of it visually in a cool abstract. great job! :)

That's what I was working on when I shot this and while this isn't my shot for the series it did help to inspire me on what will be, it's coming :)

:) I thought about writing a comment that goes somewhere along those same old lines about me being fascinated by the amount of personality and devotion in your work (:blahblah:), but I concluded that a cute emoticon would sum it all up. :shrug: :hug:
