    Very interesting. You get great results like this. One very small point if I may – those Dutch Masters date to the seventeenth century not the seventh.

      Of course, you are right. Thanks for catching my typo.

    Ron that’s a really cool post

    I particularly like the images with fewer elements

    Fruit, Tomatoes, Rum and cigar

    The more limited elements in those seem to invite thought and seem to look more, painterly

    Cool stuff

    Thanks!

      Thanks, John

      I hear you. I tend to set up and shoot whatever is on my mind at the moment and lately they have been simpler compositions. Thanks.

    My gosh these are beautiful. These remind me of the still-lifes that were used in the big Kodak film and developing books to demonstrate various Kodak large-format films. I spent hours looking at them when I was a kid and now to see these is just brilliant.

    All the best!

    Amazing results! Curious to know what LED light you are using?

      It’s a led bulb, not panel. I have since switched to a strobe, however. See attached for the build info. Thanks

    Impressive! And certainly something to be inspired by. I love the way you choose the backgrounds to match the subject in texture and color. I’m not very good with photoshop but, one thing I’ve learned from viewing your images, I need to learn a bit of compositing or how to add textures and colors to backgrounds. Well done, I really enjoyed the article and the images. Among my favorites, “my grandfathers toolbox”, “green vase,” “tomatoes,” “rum and cigar,” and a few more. Thanks for sharing your images and process.

      Thanks for your kind comments. While I do some compositing of backgrounds I am doing less now. It certainly has its place and completely changes the look of the image.
