Pretty Accident

This is not what I had in mind for today’s post.  You know what it’s like though, when find something you did by accident that is actually kind of neat….you feel the need to share it with everybody.  

I found this pic in a collection of shots I took the other morning for a product shoot.  As I was to work with the natural window light, I was firing off preliminary test shots to gauge my aperture and shutter speed.  The client had this really delicate, gauzy curtain covering a sliding glass door.  The sunlight streaming through the glass was much too harsh, however, this curtain acted as the perfect diffuser.

Just a simple image with delicate, soft lighting.  What I love most is the fact that I captured it without meaning to, or realising it.
