Seattle Central Creative Academy: Photography Assignment (High Reflectivity)

On this next assignment we were asked to control the highlights on a highly reflective subject with the use of one strobe.  I chose a simple brass cuff with Native American symbology carved into the surface.  Using one strobe camera left raised to a 45 degree angle with a gold reflector directly beneath the floating cuff, I sought to create an image representing a National Geographic artifact found at an archaeological dig.
