The Hat Box

By chase
Some of my hat collection,most of them are my Mums' hats used for various events over the years & a couple that I have picked up in charity shops.
Lit with a small lightbox almost from above...I was having a try with different ways of lighting these,had I used a black bg then this would have been one of my low light efforts Wink
An HDR image,3 frames,1 stop apart,combined in Lightroom then finished off in Photoshop with the addition of a drop of 'noise'.

Possibly not gonna pull any trees up this one but,I like it & getting the hats out reminded me of the times my Mum actually wore some of them.I can see the change in fashion over the years too.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.....I see a 'still life' category in the main tags too...happy days !
