41 - The Sun King
Man, I'm glad this week is over. This one was a grinder at work. One intractable problem after another. I'd really like to have a couple of easy weeks for once. It seems like I haven't had one in years.
Some photogeek tech talk: Doing all these guitar photos, I've discovered that classic portrait lighting tends to work really well with inanimate objects. The biggest difference is that objects are more likely to have giant specular highlights, so you have to guard against reflections a lot more diligently. For this still life of a copper sundial, I used very traditional Rembrandt lighting and it worked like a charm.
