Continuing on with the Fixtures series today. In addition to door knobs and light switches, our houses are full of banisters, railings and posts. Without them we’d fall on our keesters while going up and down the stairs, but they’re something we rarely look at.
Today’s subject is a decorative newel post from our main staircase. I wanted to make an image of it not just for it’s interesting shape, but for the character in the wood.
I’m not sure how interesting these shots are from the viewer’s standpoint. From my standpoint I’m rather enjoying them. So far they’ve been fairly simple shots when it comes to lighting setup, but have been challenging as to composition. I’ve been spending so much time focusing on the former the last few weeks that I’ve been lax on the latter, which makes shooting this series an interesting change of pace.
I’ll probably make a few more in this series. If you’re finding them boring don’t worry, the weather is finally looking up here, so I’ll hopefully be getting to some outdoor shots soon!
