My project - Extra lights

My project - Extra lights - student project

Dear Mariya, 

I can't thank you enough for your amazing classes! I always loved the way you captured still life and couldn't imagine that one day I will be spending hours on preps and playing with the light and composition to take my own still life pictures because this genre never worked for me. But now I have a feeling that there's a progress - and that's all because of you and your tips and tricks :) 

So, back to my project. I used my DSLR and the nifty fifty since my favourite 100 f/2 is being repaired. The only light I haven't tried was the  evening blue light, simply  because  most of the time I'm coming home too late to catch it. I used candles and Christmas lighs as extra lights and I must admit they do create some magic atmosphere and a very cozy feeling. Here's what I've got:

Tea and cookies after midnight:

Morning tea with candles. I don't like the composition here to be honest but couldn't come up with anything better

Thanks again and looking forward to completing all of your classes! xx
