Dedicated to my mum. Happy Birthday

Fleetway – Model S B was made in England in the 1960"s. It’s made with Suffolk Metal and has a suction base.
I treasure this piece and love it as it was my parents and they have handed it down to me. I have it displayed in my kitchen. I have no memories of my mum using it though.

I used a desk light with a white eco light bulb on a maple set of draws to the left side. On the right side I used a blank white painters canvas to reflect the light back. The white light turned golden by reflecting on the golden maple wood. The reason I used a painters blank canvas is that it has a wooden frame and can stand on a flat surface.

    Beautifully photographed, so warm and appealing! I’m so glad you went into details about your lighting, as it lets us know that fancy studio lighting is not always required.

  • Thanks Celeste. I added a it more to my blurb. Often things you have around the house works well. I have used a tin foil home made reflector for years with lots of repairs. The camera shops near me don’t sell them reflectors. Recently I purchased some.
