    Hi Rob

    I'm not sure about what is the reaction you expect from the viewer, but whatever it is, I liked this series very much.

    Good sense of humor

    I like very much the reflection on the one "he" is dreaming about wine.

    Hi Tono. Thanks for the comments. I do like to take inanimate objects and try to portray them in situations and poses that suggest something more human. It's not easy, and often I'm reduced to relying more on suggestion and innuendo. Most of these shots above are mildly sexually suggestive, but it doesn't have to be sex. After all, most of the objects that we use every day are more than the sum of their parts. They often mean something else to us, other than their intended use and hopefully people can see that in the shots that I do. That's the tricky part.

    I've been known to hang out in kitchen accessory shops. They see me coming and run. I'd love to take all my camera gear into a kitchen shop for a whole day...

    I do think a lot about this type of shot before I shoot it. I just imagine different scenarios in my head, and try to think of a play on words as the titles are often important.

    I do love my Espresso in the morning, which I was doing when I visited your site, and I presume you are the photographe for these cafetieres? A work of art "déco", inticing, a second view (cup) is needed!

    For #1 and #2 I used two pieces of A3 photography paper taped together to form an infinity curve backdrop - along the table and curling up behind the objects.

    For #3 and #4 I shot them on a sheet of black reflective perspex. This shot of a similar set-up shows how I did it. If you imagine the camera where the red box-file is, sort of looking down on the objects, with the softbox light behind and above. I also had a side light on one side with a white umbrella.

    For the last shot I placed the screw on some black paper on the table, and I had a Lastolite black velvet backdrop behind. If you don't want to spend on one of those, then just a piece of ironed black velvet will do. It doesn't need to be very large. I allowed plenty of space to the left of the screw when shooting, then copied the screw and some black space around it. Then copied that to a new layer in CS5, moved it to the left, made it smaller in scale, and applied a radial (zoom) blur to it.

    Piece of cake, really.

    Thank you, Louise. Glad your morning coffee was made more pleasant.

    Thank you, Vladimir. I must confess I normally have to keep them separate to avoid a scandal in the village! I only bring them out for photo-shoots...

    Another great set, as usual Rob. The play on words along with great composition and wahla!

    Very good images and creative imagination!
    It once again justifies the old question..
    " Since when did the paint brush start painting? "
    Thanks for sharing.

    Re: screwing around in the kitchen

    Someone asked me by PM this morning for more details how I got the white background for these first two shots. I just used two sheets of A3 photographic paper placed end-to-end. You can tape them together to hide the seam. Tape the top end to something vertical.

    It gives the effect of an infinity curve, much the same as a full size paper roll used in portrait studios. It's essentially the same thing. Different types of paper (matt or glossy) will give slightly different finishes. If you don't have photographic paper, use photocopier paper, or a roll of any white paper - but it does need to be very white, which is why I use photography paper.
