Will, Paul, thank you for your kind words.

Paul, lit by one portaflash with snoot fitted. 20D is superb, think Ill have to invest in some L glass to do it justice though. Know any friendly bank managers?

Great shot as it is (Click), it might also look good by curving the background to make an 'infinity curve' & a smooth white background

Thank you all for your kind words.

Andy, I used one Portaflash mini studio flash 336VM with a snoot fitted, positioned a few inches out of shot on half power (I think).

I should add that I underexposed this shot by 1 stop and then selectively brought the exposure back up for each paperweight to get a better balance.

Adrian.
