Asparagus

By cattyal  
Some less than perfect Asparagus was found lurking yesterday so a few pics taken continuing the old pot theme. I could do with sorting out a balancing act for the second pot as the asparagus was too heavy to do it and I wanted that pot tilted too but that's something I will work on another day.

Meanwhile a weekend of dossing about in the sunshine awaits.......

Thanks Smile I used my highly technical large sheet of foamboard with a rectangle cut out of the middle technique - it works rather well Smile

I think you are going somewhat 'potty', but you still keep on producing amazing images.

Towering ahead as usual with another superb image.
Do you use the foamboard like a lightbox?
you seem to get it spot on every time.

Admirable technique while the composition of the pots don't look right.

Perhaps a Z shaped composition with the second pot leaning opposite to the third while no doubt you have explored that possibility with various weights for stability...

Oops - sorry for the late return - Thank you again everyone Smile

Kate - I use the foamboard like a window. The window in my studio is rather large which whilst great, can be a tad too much. I use the foamboard with a rectangle in it just to cut the light down and direct it a bit more. I also frequently use white foamboard as a reflector - very handy stuff.

I will experiment with this kind of arrangement again - I just need to sort out some suitable weights and perfect my balancing!
