Nice still life

Good arrangement, lighting, color. Would make a nice calender photo.

You learn from those who played before

Randall, I have been watching your extensive work and really rocking back and enjoying every bit of it, and from what I have seen, I could tell that you are an....Active kind of guy with a Creative kind of mind. Well done every time.

Fellow Travellers

Thank you Fons, Chris and Kerland. It's nothing really, just a lifetime maniacal obsession ;-) Not sure which takes more precedence, the tools of the craft, the building of each shot? especially true in Product/Tabletop" or the love of light and it's amazing properties. Again, thank you gentlemen.

One more question Randall, the colourfull background is standing upsidedown, take a look at the pot the bird and the deer ! Maybe it was you intension to be not distracted from it but it is wurth a question isn't it?

Yes I did do that on purpose Fons. I did consider trying to get the pattern upright, but it just wasn't an issue for me.....Mr.PICKY ;-) It just gives ones eye something to scan, which means that you are paying attention eh! Regards

Saturated colours

Hi Juan. Thank you for the compliments. The "secret" to saturated colours is (1) use a "specular "light source > flash.and try to use "bounced" as little as possible or as a fill to raw flash as your "key or main light" (2) Under expose slightly. Regards.
