Marbles


Five Marbles

In my ‘artistic’ days when I did a lot of painting in water colour and oils, the subject I enjoyed most was Still Life. So, in the times that I’ve exhausted garden stuff to photograph, and when there are no ‘hoomans’ to hand, I turn to setting up objects indoors to get creative with.  It’s essential not to have a distracting background, and in the absence of a proper studio, I bought a small Light Tent some years ago that came with a couple of spotlights and several different colour cloth backgrounds. It easily sets up on a table top, but I need to sort out my little ‘office’ so that I don’t have to keep setting up and dismantling every time I need to use it. I still have stuff to dispose of since downsizing.

Anyway – back to today’s offering:  I have some marbles ‘donated’ by my grandchildren which I’ve photographed a few times before.

Four Marbles

I placed some on a mirror tile and eventually managed to get them to stop rolling around …. what a palaver!

Marbles again

I guess it’s just been an exercise in using shapes, reflections and lighting. I do love a bit of sparkle, don’t you?   Eileen
