Another 365 Project – Day 46

From street photography to landscapes, from still lifes to portraits. Today was a still life day. A couple of years ago, I gave my older daughter a tea set. No, not the kind of tea set one would have to serve stuffed animals at a tea party, but a clay Chinese tea set from Ming Tao Xuan in Montreal. Aside from serving tea, I find it rather photogenic.

The lighting was simple, a single portable strobe shooting into an umbrella, but pointed away from the subject on camera left. The light was close to wrap around the subject becoming a relatively big light. As the flash’s power was aimed away from the subject, the lens was shot wide open resulting in the narrow depth-of-field.
