Supposed to take in something interesting from home for a still life but promptly forgot! Anyway, that aside, it was more fun than I expected! The ever resourceful group had all sort of things from backdrops to old cameras. From flowers to meringue – fab! We used the modelling lamp from the studio flashes so I needed high ISO 6400 to get 1/125 f5.6 – for steady hand holding and reasonable depth of field. The white balance was ‘warm’ from the tungsten light compared to flash and the fluorescent tubes in the studio were on too so I used a grey card to get the white balance right and copied the white balance setting to the rest of the pictures.
Saved again by my picturing chums!
Lots of inspiration for the long winter nights!
