Home Page Photo


For various reasons I can’t get out and photograph as much as I’d like. I have other demands on my time, but I decided this shouldn’t stop me from taking pictures. I decided to start doing still life photographs because I can do those over time, working on them at odd hours and when I get a chance. The photograph on this site’s home page is the result of one of those efforts.

I never came up with a title, but someone else called it “The Photographer’s Toy Box.” They also called it a product shot. I can live with both of those statements. Besides, it worked out so very well as the cover image for this site.

I thought you might be interested in seeing how it was photographed. After I had set it up and lit it, I grabbed a camera from the props–look closely and you’ll see that the Panasonic GX7 is missing from the table–and took a quick photo using only the garage fluorescents and the two strobe modeling lights for illumination.

Perhaps the message from this photograph is “don’t trust what you see.” You never know what’s just outside of the viewfinder in any photograph. It might be my garage.
