My late father had worked tin, copper and other metals for several years. As I was with my grandfather recently he asked me if I could take some shots of the works that he had as he wasn’t sure each one had been photographed.
I thought this would be a great way to try some new type of photography. But my only equipment consists of a camera and a tripod I had to improvise all the rest. I took the shots near the window and as it was cloudy it gave a nice diffused light. Then we put an old spotlight on the wall behind the table and here we go.
I posted all the photos on the following blog http://jeanmariesoler.wordpress.com/ (it will also be containing other product shots not taken by me later).
No HDR here, no retouches except cropping.
Details are: Aperture: f/7.1 – Exposure: 0,6 sec – Focal lengths: 36mm – ISO: 100
