They are cool! Great idea, two completely different plates and the handle is what they use for drawers, am I right?

nath said...

what a lovely bit of re-purposing. i have a craft book with the instructions to do the same. those red berries are very cheery too.

How do you get such crisp photos? Tripod and using aperture settings?? Or is it a secret? Nice stuff anyway — love the print you did recently…‘Rebuild Square’

Fine Little Day said...

Anonymous, I wouldn´t know how to do it. Mia is the master :)

Ben, no tripod. We have good day light in the studio (windows in the ceiling). I process (if I process) in Aperture. In these photos I´ve just correct the white balance, thats all. Thanks for your comment!
