Something I’d really like to learn more about. Your photos have such subtil lighting, they convey a great atmosphere. Tobias M. Schiel July 15, 2017 at 5:16 am 3 years ago Reply Thank you, Danny! First of all, let me say that I find the lighting in your pictures quite intrguing. As for Gregor, all I knew at the beginning was that I did not want to show the “Ungeziefer” [vermin] too plainly. I wanted its shell to glare out of the dark corner (and then had to deal with casting some light on the people) – except for the black-and-white photo which was supposed to be made as carelessly as it is crass. For pictures 2 to 4, a desk lamp did the job … plus a stage set with cut out ‘windows’… Shelly Corbett July 13, 2017 at 2:33 pm 3 years ago Reply Tobias, I love this series of six. As a lover of Kafka, your photos really evoke the terror and surreal nature of his writing. And like Dwaas, I love the lighting. Wonderful!! Tobias M. Schiel July 15, 2017 at 5:18 am 3 years ago Reply Thank you so much Shelly – and for making this possible. It is pleasure to be here. I sometimes wonder what one would see in this mini series if I had not said a word about Kafka or ‘Metamorphosis’… brett_wilson July 13, 2017 at 5:13 pm 3 years ago Reply Tobias, as one who “pushes” posts out to other social media platforms, I have to see posts before they get published. I normally don’t like to have the surprise ruined for me. However, your post had me mesmerized. I feel a little guilty that spent so long with each photo before everyone else got to! The light, shadows, subject, the B&W shot added to the mix, the overall atmosphere were just perfect. Thanks. Tobias M. Schiel July 15, 2017 at 5:20 am 3 years ago Reply Thank you, Brett! I’m really glad you enjoyed it! Tomek Skog July 16, 2017 at 11:56 am 3 years ago Reply Wow. Just wow. I’m amazed. Tobias M. Schiel July 16, 2017 at 10:48 pm 3 years ago Reply Thanks, Tomek!
