About the Image(s)

This image of a still life setup was taken in Chicago at an Out of Chicago photo conference in 2018. I used my tripod-mounted Nikon D80 with Tamron 70-300mm lens, and shot at 160mm, f /4.8, 1/80 sec, and ISO 500. In LR I did basic exposure adjustment, and in PS I sharpened and cropped slightly.

A well executed and unusual still life. Pin sharp where needed, well done.   Posted: 11/10/2021 10:04:34

Mark, I really love this image !!
Would love to know where I can find colorful bottles like these so I can attempt to do the same thing for myself. Really nicely done !   Posted: 11/13/2021 04:14:33

Unfortunately, they weren't my bottles! But I agree, they make great still life subjects.   Posted: 11/25/2021 00:50:43

Mark, I also love this image. Very well done. I like the reflections the colored bottles give to the white backdrop. I'm with Donna and may try to duplicate :-) for myself. Only thing I see is if the seams of the bottles could have been removed of just turned so they were less noticable. Other than the it's wonderful.   Posted: 11/13/2021 10:33:23

Great image of the vases. The sharp image at the openings and blue in the background is really nice.   Posted: 11/18/2021 15:09:53

Nice composition; wonderful colors. The purple bottle on the left gets soft much to quickly for my tastes. Or, the bottle on the right could get soft, too.   Posted: 11/25/2021 09:19:19
