This is the second Still Life shot in my new exploration of the genre after more than 40 years of not shooting a single one.
It is by no means the last one that I will do as I have recently moved to New Mexico from California and winter is fast approaching, along with its frigid temperatures. I believe that indoor photography is going to be just the thing! That and the fact that I love shooting Still Life!
Single exposure using single soft box-encased quartz modeling light on my Ascor QC1000 studio strobe setup, with supplemental white card reflectors on camera right to provide slight fill light and to add highlight on right of copper vessel.
Light placement: Camera Left, high above and behind table as backlighting.
Olympus E-30 camera mounted with Zuiko 35mm f3.5 Macro lens. 1/2sec. f11, ISO 100.
Processed using Adobe Photoshop CS5, and FastStone editor.
