Yes-I shot the spoon twice. Is that dedication or what? Michael didn't think this first attempt showed the angle in which he uses to scoop with, so, without rolling my eyes, I went back to it. And I'm glad I did because I learned that light can be an interesting design element.
It was a cloudy when I started shooting, but then the sun came out and I saw the design of light coming through the shutters was making on the table. Not very noticeable on dark wood so I grabbed a piece of foam core, put it under the spoon and moved things around until I had a composition that I liked. The blue (have I said this too much?) is because the white balance is set to bulb. The blue gives color to an otherwise B&W image. Here it is balanced to daylight. Not as pretty.
