Nice picture! Where did you get the Razorback Beer ? I'm from Arkansas in the U.S. and the University of Arkansas' sports teams are called the Razorbacks.

Supper



An attempt at some still life. The best part of this type of photography, is that the props can be eaten afterwards.

Behind The Lens

Location
In my dining room....funny enough
Time
Evening, as I didn't want there to be much ambient light
Lighting
I waited until it was dark, but left the curtain open to my dining room. This left a very small of light in. I then used the candle to produce some extra light...and of course the reflections.
Equipment
I used a tripod as the exposure was quite a long one.
Inspiration
I physical disability makes it difficult for me to carry out the motorsport photography that I have loved. I am therefore looking at different genres to find one of particular interest. This was one of my attempts at still life photography. It was completely contrived, but I had seen the image in my minds eye before setting it up. The props were things I found lying around the house. The best thing about this kind of photography, is that I had to drink the beer and the b read and pate afterwards.
Editing
I just didi a little darkening of the blacks, decreased the shadows and lowered any digital noise.
In my camera bag
On this occasion I was using an olympus setup with a tripod.
Feedback
Look at other photographer's work, spend time on view bug looking at some of the amazon g images on there and get some inspiration. Sure, photographs of most things have been done before, but you can emulate images and put your own photohgraphic flair into them.
