Two vases

Here's a very classic exercise with an external flash. I find the result quite nice, though.

Pentax K10D + Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 + external flash

I had a single flash on the left, placed on a tripod, and held a stretched sheet of cooking paper in front of it, to obtain a soft diffused light. On the right I had a sheet of aluminum paper - that had been previously crumpled and then stretched out - as a reflector. This gave just a hint of light to define the contour of the vase on the right.

Gorgeous! This is beautifully lit, and the subtle reflections from the surface really makes the shot for me.
