About the Image(s)

Shutter speed: 1/8s
Exposure program: Aperture Priority
Aperture Value: f/16
ISO: 1600
Lens Nikor 50mm f/1.4
Camera: Nikon D750
The photo was taken in a room with a LED bulb on the ceiling. The table top is made of yellow/brown plywood. There is a window on the left and it was sunny outside. The wall is white but reflection from the yellow/brown table top gave it a slight tint.The photo was taken with the camera on a tripod. The photo was processed in Lightroom CC.
Some weeks ago, I saw an alignment of glasses in the dining room of an hotel and I saw there an opportunity for a still life photo.
I used a high ISO value because of the small aperture of the lens: I was trying to have all the glasses in focus.

Gaetan, I'm glad you saw this and wanted to make this photo. I like how the table came out, however I'm not so excited about the green tint this gave to the glass and wall background. The sparkle is a great shade of blue, but not natural. You might want to reduce the blues and greens in this. Jim   Posted: 10/01/2021 14:15:26
