pesonally i think the background is far to grey and wont help you to acheive a clean shot like you want, what did you use for the background? alos id crop some of the grey from under the whisks and try to eliminate the line that runs in the background..perhaps hang a sheet so it curves at the back to avoid this...

im not good with the technical stuff but i hope that helps alittle bit

A dirty piece of card and a reflecter! Not the best facilities at college at times.

Sheet idea is good, might try that next week thanks.

This I like.

I like the idea and the concept and can just see it in a kitchen utensils shopping guide.

I dont mind the background colours but white would have given you a more simplistic and clean look maybe.

The composure is good and I like the highlights on the handle. The lighting to me has been well thought out and I can appreciate that this was in a collage studio and you had to use what you had to hand.

You have a couple of dust spots but Im sure they could be got rid of.

I also think this would benefit from a crop, maybe into a letterbox style.

But its a great image and a vast improvement on your very first studio shots.

Well done the Pepster Smile

OKay, my 2ps worth for today:

I agree about the background, but if you can get an A1 sheet of white card, you can place them on that and curve it up without having to worry about wrinkles like sheets get - about 1.50 from a local art store. Just use a dod of blu-tack or selotape to attach it to the wall.

Agree with Lee on the dust spots and crop (as we totally disagreed on yesterdays lol)

Like that there are no glaring reflections, but maybe up the exposure a tad to get the background whiter?
