Sometimes compromises have to be made between how something looks and how it works, well not in this case. This corkscrew is not only a superb tool, it has beautiful form too. I hope I have been able to bring that out in this shot.
Laid on a black backcloth, lit from above with a halogen anglepoise and the shadows deliberately kept low.
This is one of those rare occasions when I was perfectly happy with the shot straight from the camera, not even the white balance or curves have been tweaked.
I hope you like it but, if you don't, feel free to point out its' flaws, all advice and critique welcome as ever.
