This is a photo I took of a friend's Ethiopian processional cross which he bought whilst filming a documentary there. I loved the distinctive African appearance through the intricate lattice work and the ageless qualities of the object. I intended to process this in a tinted, contrasty black and white right from the start.
I use rough sheets (rough for texture) of white card for the backdrop and used available light, angling the scene for the shadow of the cross.
Details: 50mm lens, 1.3 sec, f/5. ISO 100.
