On Montblanc in the Writing Instruments challenge (5 comments in total)

Sounds like we are using similar lighting techniques, I also like to use white ceilings and walls to bounce a fit of added flash for some shots. I vignetted the bottom of the image to darken the text. The text was actually printed off on the printer.

Hi Jmiller, my shot was taken indoors using available outdoor light from two windows at 90 degrees to each other. the light from the closer window was reduces more then the other one using the vertical drapes.
how about your shot. the lighting looks very nice as well, what was your method of lighting the pen?

On Fountain Pen1 in the Writing Instruments challenge (5 comments in total)

Hi all, Thanks for those nice comments. As you can see, I took this photo a number of years ago, for a different challenge, and decided to recycle it as it suited this challenge perfectly. I don't often recycle images. but every now & then I get tempted and do it. BTW it came first in the Fountain pen challenge as well... just wanted to prove to myself that it wasn't a fluke...LOL.

On Bird of Glass in the sunset. in the Last Position challenge (9 comments in total)

Congratulations BetteFnug, you are on the right track to becoming a better photographer. Starting from last position means that you can only improve from here, and I an sure you will. so please do not be discouraged by this result, and pick up your camera at every opportunity and use it. the more pictures you take the better you will get. Looking at the picture above, and if you like taking photos of glassware in this sort of lighting, which can make it look very striking, I would invest in a good tripod. That will make your photos look sharper straight away. If you have any questions at any time feel free to message me and I can see if I can answer them for you..

Regards

Peter
