Lighting fun

A number of months ago, I was given a splendid gift by my girlfriend’s parents: a foldout lightbox. I’m rather ashamed to admit that today was the first time I’ve used it, since it really is a wonderful device.

When I was browsing through the themes for Photo 52, I knew almost immediately what I wanted to do for week four, with the title: “Open”. I wanted to photograph a jar of something, with the foil seal freshly torn off, and I wanted it in this lightbox, like a product advert. I kept a closed jar of peanut butter for the day when I would magically find the time. Today was that day, so imagine my surprise when I discovered that this jar didn’t have a foil seal. I wasn’t going to let that spoil my productive mood however, and here is the result.

There was more Photoshop than usual to remove the creases in the background (who needs ironing?) though I’m still not 100% happy. It’s quite hard to spot them while shooting; they show up much more on a monitor.

  1. It’s almost perfect – well done indeed!

    I’m always mixed when pictures that look perfect on the camera reveal imperfections on screen, painting with light was the worst for that. Nonetheless this was pretty much bang on. I’d eat it.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of
    this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to
    get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.

    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog
    loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog! asmr 0mniartist
