I wanted to show you in today's post what the elaborate set up is that I use to take photos. Or not! This is it really. Just a chair, some boards in black or white (or blue which I never use), my camera, a tripod, and light from a window.
If you see dramatic shadows in my shot, it was with light like #2. I place the object in swatch of direct sunlight (early morning) to light it.
If it has a more even light, then it was with the light in #3. Which is the kind of light I used for the leaf shots today and the past couple of days. This light is from around mid day to late afternoon or on overcast days.
For the leaf shots (and flowers), the board is leaning against the back of the chair. The flowers are in a vase and I use a photo holder with a clip at the top to hold the leaf in place.
So, that's it! Is it Just Like You Imagined [youtube.com]? A little NIN to spice up your Tuesday!
