    Taken for active assignment weekly - Still life. Here's something thats not classical, but borrows from old school still life lights and shadows.

    The background is the back cover of November, 1925 National Geographic. The front cover is a little too interesting to be a background.

      I'll accept your word that it's the November 1925 National Geographic. If you had told me it was brown wrapping paper, I'd have believed you as well ;-)

      The shades make a nice subject, and I really like the way you've got the shadows to be so prominent.

      Very nice, the shadows work well here.

      I really like the minimalist aspect of this shot. It's a bit lonesome feeling. The unintentional traveller.

      I'd like to see the front cover of the 1925 National Geographic :)

      it is good that the paper is rumpled and not smooth, this gives it an original/authentic look ...

      A brown wrapping paper would have worked the same. Sadly, I was short of wrapping papers and happened to have a really old copy of the magazine:-)
      For all the Doubting Thomases, I did try to shoot the front page with the date and all to authenticate the old feel. But the cover grabs most of the attention!
      Kunal, I could bring it sometime :)

      The low angle of the lighting really brings out the texture of the paper.

      I liked the shadows and the background..
      the shadow makes it look bigger than it actually is..
      somehow the photo is a bit too minimalistic!

      Interesting viewing angle on the shades. The shadows and the background are great indeed.
