My family and I were in St. Louis this past Saturday picking up this beauty and a HUGE toolbox for my husband's shop. I mean not like a normal size toolbox, but an extra size one. St. Louis is where we drive to when we want to get some city visiting done, since it has everything and is a fairly short drive for us (well if you consider 2.5 hours short to get to a city haha). If anybody would like to guess what this is (pretty easy) and/or what kind this is (maybe a little more challenging) I would love to hear your guesses.
Shutter 1/800 sec.
50mm focal length 18-70mm lens
One off-camera flash
I decided that I would practice some more of my still-life photography to go with Scott's still-life picture. Not sure if that is a photography term or just an art term but it makes sense to me. I don't photograph still-life stuff very often so it was interesting to work with lighting and how to set the objects up to make them look good and get a good shot of them. I don't "see" shots like this very easily so it was a challenge. This one and one other were the only two that I liked out of the several shots that I took. But as we all know practice makes perfect and more practice is needed. Hmmmm I think I will need to remember that here while playing with this baby (pray I don't get too frustrated and throw the thing against a wall)! Talk about stepping out of my comfort zone with this in more ways then one.
Hope you all try to step out of your own comfort zones in life!
