I took this photo (and many more!) back in 2011 for a close-up class with Bryan Peterson. The assignment was specular highlights, so I brought this glass basket to my back porch when the late afternoon light was streaming in.
It’s a lovely basket decorated with red flowers, and I shot it many different ways. This isn’t the shot I used in the class but it caught my eye when I was looking through my archives.
Nikon D300s with Nikon 105mm lens.
I boosted the contrast and vibrance and used two layers of Alien Skin Snap Art 4 with custom settings and different opacities.
