Right, a couple more photos taken after dinner:

Who knew spoons could be so interesting

And this is what it looks like in the makeshift home studio, also known as the dining room:

The backdrop is a sheet purchased in a sale today from Briscoes, the reflectors came with an issue of the UK Amateur Photographer magazine a few years back, the snoot (the thingy around the flash to help direct the light) is a rolled up piece of A4 paper taped on to the flash with a piece of cardboard (from the sheet packaging) used to block light from hitting the backdrop. The spoon rests in Keryn’s mortar and is counterbalanced with a small tabletop tripod (which was also obtained free from a UK photography magazine). The breadmaker in the background is not required for the photo making process.

I have also discovered I need better rechargeable batteries, the ones I have only last for a dozen or so shots before the cycle time gets too long to be bearable.
