    >Traditionally, that would be taken on a sheet of frosted glass, with the fork's shadow illuminated from the bottom and the spoon's shadow balanced out from the top. And the shot would have probably been taking with a view camera and composed on ground glass, so you can tell exactly when the spoon's shadow disappears. Nowadays? Photoshoppe. Much easier. But not nearly as artistic.Stranger

    >Possibly, though my eye suggests a slight floatiness to the spoon above the fork shadow — about the thickness of a sheet of glass. Question: is the art the image, the conceiving of the image, or the manner in which it is executed?

    >For the photographic arts, the conception (or recognition) of an image is considered art, while the post exposure execution is artistry. A distinction that occupied a great deal of time at a certain camera club while the unmistakable impression of a cane bottom chair faded from the model's bottom. Stranger
