This little trinket was given to me as a gift a few years ago. I use it as a paperweight, but that’s not what it’s meant to be. It’s a “box” for storing very tiny things. I thought it would be a fun thing to photograph it on this miserable grey day.
As I said above, it’s grey and miserable outside. There wasn’t a heck of a lot of natural light to be found anywhere in the house, so I placed my subject about 12″ front of a window and I used a flash.
The wall in the background is a warm beige, but you’d never know it from this photo. I think it’s pretty neat how the dismal grey light from outdoors made the room appear cool, but the colouring of my subject stayed true to life. It almost looks as if I selectively desaturated my image.
