Kim's course The Studio' I've been playing around with a clementine (only one left in the fruit bowl!) and an old jam jar. The setup is in the hall with a glass door to the left. The cheesecloth backdrop has been stuck to the wall with masking tape and the base is a tile from a DIY store. Some light has been bounced back onto the scene with a white foam board (black on one side) balanced on a chair. I'm always fascinated to see others' setups, so this might be a small glimpse into the 'portable studio' which is a too grand name for what is a table and a chair! Texture used is kk_magic waterfront, 24-70 lens.

Kim's Bestill52 class this week was to shoot a still life with the theme 'citrus'. I'm almost sure kiwi fruit may not be classed as citrus so you might have to use your imagination here and think 'lemon' or 'orange'! It was set up in the hallway, in front of a glass door, south facing, but no sun today so I used a white foam board for extra light. After adding Kim's LR preset 'lightairypastel' I added her texture 'flow' in Elements. The knife is a vintage fruit knife which belonged to my mother so it's about 75 years old. In other words, an old knife! Now to eat the props!
