i've been lurking, trying to learn how to turn from dvd's, youtube, online articles and this forum. i finally received my photo tent and several lights yesterday so i tried it out today.
this little sycamore potpourri bowl is about 4"dia. by 3.5" with 1/4" walls. i used the maloof oil/varnish finish and then buffed with the beall system.
but i'm not thrilled with the backdrop in the photos and need to come up with something textured that won't wrinkle...like berber carpet?? you photo wizards can probably recommend something. also the lighting is going to take some time to figure out.
any suggestions will be appreciated.
