About the Image(s)

The latest assignment for my PSA photography course was for a “still life” and this is one I submitted. The arrangement is in my home ” I’m a big fan of green glass (have no idea why!) ” and these 3 orbs are among my favorites. ISO 800, 31mm, f/4.0, 1/60 sec

FYI ” for those of you using Lightroom Classic, I bought a book my mentor recommended and am finding it extremely useful: “How Do I Do That In Lightroom?” By Scott Kelby. I bought it on Amazon and keep it handy when I’m attempting some modifications.

Great project. Each item likely has a great story, but my favorite is the jug in the background. That one looks to me like the most interesting story to tell of all. While the handle on the jug is a bit soft, the detail captured elsewhere and in the orbs is very good. The placement of all four items looks very good. Color throughout the four items, the table and wall, is complementary and pleasing to look at. Did you used a tripod? Removal of the string from the handle on the jug would be less distracting and I wonder if a polarizing filter would have prevented/reduced the glare on all four items. This is a pleasing picture to look at Dough, Great job!   Posted: 07/09/2024 14:06:05
