Still Life in a Frugal Way
I've begun an 8-week workshop that highlights still life photography -- with Cheryl McCain. For my still life, I've also added a texture from Pixel Dust Photo Art because I don't have very good backgrounds right now. The texture makes the items look as if they have been placed on a beautiful piece of fabric. (The additional image at the bottom is a vertical still life, also texturized and vignetted.) I used a floor lamp and table lamp for light here and set my camera white balance on tungsten; I still had to adjust the color in Picasa. Today, I received my soft box tent set-up, with two lights. By next week, I hope to have had some practice.
