But I'm back, at least for now. I spent this morning trying to knock out a few more themes that I've missed in my absence and I'll be posting a few more in the next coming days.
This post, however, is all about still life. I chose to photograph crayons. Don't ask me why... I just did.
|ISO 100 f/2.5 1/80s|
This photo actually has very little editing which is just the way I like it. The seamless background was achieved by:
- Covering a surface in tin foil and pushing that surface against the window (in this case the "surface" was a large 30 gallon tote, but it can be anything from a book to a table)
- Placing white paper (wax paper or a diffuser can be used) on the window so you don't see trees or have too harsh of lighting directly on the subject.
- Pulling the crayons about a foot away from the window and having a high aperture so that there isn't a break between the tin foil and the paper.
