A cosy cuppa

A cosy cuppa - student project

Hi Mariya

I very much enjoyed this class! I really do love photography, but sometimes I need something to give me a good reason to get my camera out, a bit of motivation. This class gave me just that. I adore the effects of light in photography and will be exploring this much more now I have got started.

I don't have access to my new camera at the moment (its with my Husband who is in the USA) so i used my Sony A200 (my first dslr) and my Sony SAM 50mm 1.8 lens.

And here is an image with both tealights and fairy lights:

I personally like the last one with both elements of light, I like the reflection on the mug. I would love to hear any thoughts :)
