    More still life

    Here are two others. I just love that tilted screen on the G1. It lets you compose like using a ground glass.

    Hi Martin - I love the effect you've managed to achieve. Would you care to explain a bit how you arrive there - all PP in Lightroom or other, or do you have to overexpose to begin with ?

    Thanks Gwendal,

    It all begins with the set-up. Diffused window light, and a large A2 curved white sheet of paper as back drop. Another sheet to fill in the shadows.

    Expose as far too the right without clipping. After that PP in LR and finally editing in PSE Elements. The latter used for masking and different blend modes,to achieve the final effect. Basicly I desaturated most of the colours and painted some back using masks. Hope this helps.
