A Still Life
I thought the title for today´s post was appropriate, because today has been just that, after last night´s celebrations! Even Sophie could´nt manage more than the T.V. the Nintendo and homework, the latter reluctantly. I made a clandestine raid on Sophie´s collection of Acorns and Acorn Husks,that she collected on our last country walk and placed them on a large round slate coaster that we use to protect the dining table from hot dishes.
The lighting was my studio lighting that I use for product photography. These bulbs give out a very balanced white light. They produce light at 6400K are 45w and cost about €30.00 each, so they won´t break the bank. To see an example of product photography using this lighting click here.
