Hi Guys,
First real attempt at still life, but anyway let me know what you think! Also inspiration for still life subjects would be great.
Cheers

I have always liked the black background with reflections on it... What did you use? P.S. I like the photos...

Hi, I used a large sheet of black polythene, with the objects sat on a thin frame of glass, like you would find in a cilp frame. I then experimented with all different kind of lamps for lighting.
Thanks
