    Reported by:

    I placed my photograph of a Nicobar Pigeon on a piece of glass, covered it with brown sugar ,lit it with a strong source of light and photographed it from above . The color of the bird was lighter than the color of the background (which was black) which caused the shape of the bird to stand out really nicely . I wanted to transform an ordinary bird photograph into an art piece by adding texture and depth.

    Sugar! Very creative. The muted palette suits the image well and the texture of the sugar grains recalls jumbled pixels, so the real world mirrors a digital one.
