I was trying to let them fit in with nature as to not be able to tell they were not real. Had to have white cards and a reflector. Was using natural backlight but got too dim so used a led backlight with the target shower curtain for diffusion. Carina on May 25, 2014 at 12:45 pm 1/100 sek, f/8,0, ISO 250 EF100mm f/2,8 I chose to photograph these two because I like them a lot and they do have shapes and texture creating reflections and shadows. To get some extra fill light lighting up from underneath I put them on a shiny linencloth with a woven pattern. The set-up incl picture; I’ve a small and very light passage in the house and there I put up a shower curtain towards a western facing glass door. To the left of the table is a reflector, actually ended up using silver. The opposite end of the passage have the same glassopening facing east. Tried a number of combinations testing different depths but enden up liking a smaller aperture giving more depth and sharpness to more details. Interesting and demanding to get enough light to the bottom of the pot. The passage didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped since there are wooden parts between windows and door that I had a problem with. Carina Teresa Ste-Marie on May 25, 2014 at 9:00 pm I set this up on white poster board on my kids’ small tables in front of a glass door leading to the back yard. I used the inside of a 5 in 1 reflector in front of the window for diffusion and I also wrapped tin foil around a gray card to fill light back in on the front of the tennis ball and also played with light on the dark, matte rim of the racket. I shot tennis related items because I am involved with communications at my tennis club and I think the white background will be useful for including the images on some documents that are sent out, so I was multitasking! I am happy with the images and will use this technique more. I like the idea of the shadow coming towards the viewer- that is a nice way to use the light. Thank you. Anjani Millet on May 25, 2014 at 10:21 pm This book, From the Ballroom to Hell, printed in the 1800’s, is the original copy which was given to me when I was 8, by my evangelical grandmother. She hauled it out to accompany “the big talk,” which I knew was coming and was about something we never talked about. But even I was a little surprised that The Talk was about the spiritual perils of ballroom dancing. She made me promise I’d never do it and I’ve kept that promise, lol! Judi Price on May 26, 2014 at 12:14 am 50 mm lens on DX camera, iso 1000, f 2.0 1/20th sec using self timer I chose this subject because a love artichokes. This was the result of my science experiment in my front yard. I really wanted to see what they look like if I didn’t pick and eat them. Its been drying for about a year. Set up was an led light and umbrella. I used a foam board to bounce back the light. A friend does macro photography with the drops so I tried my hand at that as well.
