yesterday i wrote about an entry in the blog on here by JanieB43, where she explained how she produces the still life images that she has in her portfolio by using a textured background. I was so impressed that i tried to write a similar blog yesterday about how I created the image that I had uploaded.

Today I move to stage 2. Today i have tried to follow the example of Janie and create a still life using a texture. I have had a go, half heartedly, at doing still life images before, but never with any success. This time I tried to do one the way that she did. I used Photoshop rather than Velvia, but tried to create the same feel. I think I have managed that to a certain extent. I know it is not the best still life in the World and experts will be able to fault lighting and composition, but for me it is a real achievement. It is a still life that I would be happy to admit to.

The key thing for me is that it has given me the confidence to work harder on lighting and composition etc, whereas my previous failures left me feeling " Can't do that - it's not for me"

Thanks Janie
