Very much an experiment with light painting. A fairly straight forward composition, a new prop, that I thought would be a good subject for such treatment.

Not for those easily bored takes ages to build up the light layers. Still some way to go but I think I'm getting there.

Some interesting props, well laid out Nick.
Slight niggle of me is the white round object in the top row seems to take the eye perhaps needs to be darkened a little

Really like the props Nick,some great textures in there.
I have to agree with Rich though,the white round thing just looks out of context a little & is so plain that it ( for me ) adds nothing to either the composition or the texture balance. Everything just seems a wee bit clumped up in the middle of the frame,I think I would have liked to have seen the larger 'can' off a little more to the LHS or even in the space inside the box.
A good technique Nick,lots of work here.Maybe a bash with HDR on these props would have been beneficial to really pop those metallic textures too..just a thought.

Thanks everyone. And yes the light grey pot is what caused me problems.

It was very much an experiment - for a more serious project, so I wanted to practice the skills. Janet as you know sometimes I do use HDR, but I just wanted to try something new. All the items arrived in the box - which I've bought for another project.
