Going nuts 2

Just some still life photos of some walnuts and hazelnuts that I needed for a project.


The nuts were photographed from the floor underneath a living room glass table at a co-worker's apartment. The worst obstacle was to get the shots without any of the light sources reflecting off the glass surface, as well as not showing up in the reflections myself. (Yes, I had to do some cropping in this shot. :)


The lighting is daylight plus a regular 40W lightbulb and a strong (halogen) office desk lamp, with a plain A3 sheet of white laser printer paper acting as a background and reflector. (Thanks to assistant Janne for location, lamps, and for holding the paper sheet! :)
