BPC: Cutlery

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , on January 22, 2012 by Luke Farrugia

As you all know, I really enjoy photography, so I have decided that each time I enter the Bundy Photo Challenge I will try to chronicle my entry here. I don’t know if it well help anyone, but I will be divulging all my secrets (if I have any), in the hope of helping others. I will of course not be posting until after voting closes for each comp.

I will be starting with the Cutlery challenge but will also be backdating posts as I get time to do so…

So, Cutlery…

Checklist

  • Cutlery: I raided my parents good set of course
  • Table in the sunlight to set up on
  • Satin pillow case
  • Breadboard to stand upright and hang the pillow case on…

Line up the shot in the morning sun

Settings

  • Focal length: 50mm (prime lens)
  • Aperture: 2.8
  • Shutter speed: 1/100
  • ISO: 200
  • White Balance: Auto

The final result?
