Green Apple – Glass Ornament

Last Thursday at the Photography Club we had a practical evening where we took in still life objects to photograph. There was three or four different tables with a variety of objects and lighting solutions. It was a great chance to play with my camera, especially seeing as I haven’t done a lot of still life photography with the Nikon. For the image above I had the camera on a tripod and the glass apple was inside a light tent, using a large lamp I was able to position the shadows exactly where I wished. Professional light tents are surprisingly expensive but I’m sure it wouldn’t be too difficult to make my own, maybe for a summer project. Still, I like the way I have the light coming through the glass, it really brings out the object.
