School: Pinjarra Senior High School
Artist statement: This sculptural chair was created by traditional blacksmith Carl McMillan and installed at my school. I thought the leading lines on the chair would make a great composition. I crouched down to eye level and zoomed in slightly to fit the sculpture within the camera frame. I only took a single image to edit with HDR toning in Photoshop. At first I changed the image to black and white as I thought the subject matter would be more defined in its shape, lines and structure. As I experimented more I realised the image worked better in colour to emphasize the detail of the metal work in HDR.
