Still Life with Apples 2

Here is another composition from yesterday, when the sun had swung round a bit, and now much of the wine box is bathed in more light.  I’m really not sure which one I prefer! The main problem for me is the distracting reflection on the base of the camera bellows… Anyway, all in all it was an interesting exercise for a few sessions during the day, adjusting and readjusting.

Still Life with Agfa Isolette



  1. I like the added glow of sunlight.

  2. nice tilt on the apples. Love the choice of objects in this set up.

  3. I like it and as I’m too lazy (and busy) to go back to yesterday’s to compare, that will have to suffice. 🙂 Happy Wednesday, Sue.


  4. I strong still life. And I think it’s fun to see how you use the same objects in various pictures and create quite different moods.

  5. This reminds me of a Swedish painter named Philip von Schantz who painted still-lives with apples and/or blue berries… They were extremely popular in the 80s

  6. Love it – Definitely retro with Agfa and box of string 🙂 All photos are still life – the frozen moments as it were, so doing stills of still life adds another depth. Do you try out different camera settings Sue?

  7. You do these so well Sue!

  8. Nice composition. I prefer the lighting of earlier shot, but both are rich with stories and imaginings.
