Recently, my mother gave me a Ziplock bag of memorabilia from my childhood. I thought it might be interesting to arrange them on a background and photograph them. I used my wife's coat with a red lining and then ended up converting the picture to black and white. Light from a lamp was falling on the objects. I don't think the outcome is what I had envisioned. I feel this is just one of those ideas that didn't work out. I would appreciate any suggestions on you think could improve it. Nikon D40, Aperture: F11, Focal length: 200mm, Exposure: 1 sec., No flash. Converted to black and white with the Gimp.
