    Trying to conquer studio lighting. It's grainy because I shot it with a 50mm and cropped in, and it's not as sharp as I hoped for (probably because of camera shake).

    Unfortunately, I don't know the first thing about proper studio lighting, but something about the second photos appeals to me. I simply like that one. Putting such a mundane object into this frame lifts it out somehow, and I like that aspect. The tones are nice and the white is whiter in the second than in the first. Plus I simply don't understand what I'm looking at in the first.

    These images are hard for me to critique...I do not know enough to critique this type.


    #1
    What I can say is that the husks look arranged and the particles look scattered. I kind of like the image though, although I cannot say why.

    #2
    Looks kind of lost in the infinity of white, although the very light shadow does anchor it some.


    I think I need some more time in art class before I can really critique these though.:)

    lighting is fine. I just want to get closer. there's great texture, show it off, not the white background

    I want to, I just don't have the right equipment yet. I'd actually prefer to shoot it with a medium format camera so I can really enlarge it.
