I was at a friends house last week, and as we were talking I saw this photograph hanging on the wall. Paul likes to talk about photography, and we began discussing the image. So, of course since he’s my friend, I told him  “Hey – I’ve been a professional photographer for 32 years and I do commercial photography also. Let me me show you a really great photo.”

In the dining room, there were two windows, about 3 feet apart. We set the table 2 feet away from the wall and centered the table between the windows. We positioned the vase in the middle of the table, took the shots, and voilà!

I didn’t have any gobo’s to work with, so I resorted to applying some Photoshop techniques to the image. (By the way, we used his camera, not mine. Goes to show you,   “It’s not the car, it’s the driver”!)

What do you think?
