Today’s picture is similar in concept to yesterday’s, except for a few key points. First of all, I wanted to show you what a great backdrop a piece of smoked glass can be. It simultaneously provides a dark, nondescript background and a great reflective surface for your object.
I wanted to get as many of the beads in focus as possible, so my aperture is closed way down at f/25. Jewelry looks great photographed this way, as do other objects with some shine to them.
