This photograph was taken yesterday whilst trying to get to grips with a new tripod. Still life photography has not been a subject that I have explored fully, however I have often been inspired by Still Life Paintings, and over the years have kicked out quite a few Oils, Pastels, and Watercolours. The warming light was kindly provided by a torch, and the rest was simply made up from withered and wonderful items found my garden shed.

Thank you so very much for all your kind comments, and words of encouragement.

Hope you all have a great day ahead, I on the other hand or off to see the vendor of our new home.


Regards Nathan

A rather pleasing atmospheric still life study. Just wonder if it is a tad too dark

Basis of a good still life image Nathan, well put together. but not sure you have got the exposure quite right in this one, all looks a little flat

I agree with WhiteRose - Rembrandt definitely would have / could have painted this. I love the colours and the atmosphere you have created Smile

A very nice still almost monochromatic capture.
The colour being strong just lacks texture.

I'm just amazed you got so much light from a single torch!
Quite atmospheric image.
This is something we can all do if housebound or weather poor
and itching to produce an image.
Let's have some more please.
