Potential Shiners

By NDODS    
This shining example of todays modern photographic techniques was captured on the now familiar 'polished' table, with a simple velvet backdrop. The illumination was kindly provided by two desk lights position either side of the subject. My round pop-ip reflector begged for a part in the production, but I simply gave him the 'brush', off. So what you see before you is a New Zealand piece set in Rochester, which has been considered my many to my a 'highly' 'polished' performance.

It's a good set-up - it creates a dark, intimate atmosphere. I like the fact that you've gone in close.
And I love the title!
