Still trying to get the blog into gear and thought I would make the most of the sunlight coming into the south-facing window. As you can see from the setup, I'm using black boards for a background and to block some of the light and although the camera is set up for a 'from above' shot, this one was taken with the camera on a cushion on the floor, using live view. 24-70 lens. The board was a length of wood picked up on the beach and cut into thirds which my willing assistant carried for me. Guess who ... I took some shots using the iron cobblers last and the small ornamental teapot which may get an airing later!
