for Iain Johnstone aka (claret)

By Atlas    
Iain has just very kindly spent ages going through my portfolio, so I thought I would say thankyou by uploading this shot.

I haven't really had much time to do anything great, I was doing some test shots for lighting and thought this may be worth sharing, hope you like it :o)

F/8
ISO 50

Taken on a glass surface with a sheet of white Perspex and a small slave flash with a green balloon stretched across to get the green light effect behind behind the sheet of Perspex.

This I think should be titled "The Strawberry'

I also think Pete should be a little less reserved and recognise talent more 'elevatedly' where it exists outside his own preferences (oops!)

This shot could/will live on

Atlas 13 621 United Kingdom
25 Sep 2005 7:16AM
Thanks Dave, Dven, Chris, Becky, Sue and Ivana.

Dave, i'm not sure what it is supposed be really, looks like a strawberry pear to me. It is a very old paperweight that my grandmother gave to me before she died aged 93.

Pete's choice or EC stuff is okayish, usually some odd choices. He usually recognises a technically good image with HC's though.
