FOLLY AND INCOMPETENCE!!!!
I know the theory of studio shots of artwork, and I have watched pros do their thing. I can arrange a good setup and such, as you see pictured here, in the happy moments before I realized how incompetent I am.
I need teapot slides. The studio has a nice skylight and there was plenty of light flooding the room, and I made a nice setup to get my shots, fiddled with the camera (the best a person could buy, around 30 years ago!) but I havn't used my wife's camera in years, and once the roll was shot I realized:
1) I had forgotten to take detail shots
2) I hadn't turned on the light meter
3) worst of all was when I was trying to rewind the film, and popped the thing open--yes, exposing the film....
so I went out and bought more film. Sigh. My wife is a pro, she can handle it. I like my digital camera, which is designed for the simple among us...
I hope Gordo reads this and has a good laugh.
