Creating a fun image from small objects takes some imagination and time. The photo here was created by using the following items; black jacket, two plush toy pumpkins, a handkerchief, and a flashlight. The black jacket served as the base and backdrop for this spooky and fun image. The pumpkins were set on the jacket a few inches apart. The handkerchief was complicated as it kept falling over and would not stand up. I ended up putting it over something so that it appears to be standing up by itself. The lighting is from a flashlight that was placed to the left of the camera. I wanted one of the pumpkins to have an orange glow while keeping the other pumpkin looking crisp and in focus without too much distortion. In order to get the lighting just right it required moving the flashlight several times to various angles. My camera was tripod mounted and the focus was done manually, as there were no other lights used for this image. The photo here is one of my favorites, very whimsical and brings a smile.
