This was fun, it felt like a longstruggle trying to get enough light without getting a million little blown out highlights on shiny wire mesh. Then I finally remembered something I read somewhere on this website. I took a wire clothes hanger (with apologies to Joan Crawford) and taped on a white plastic grocery bag and held it between subject and lamp.Though I'm pretty happy with the result, the photo doesnt really reflect the bright shine of the wire. Is this a limitation of the camera or of the loose nut behind the viewfinder? :lol:

Pretty fine mesh. Id guess thats a tea strainer. I think the exposure is spot on.

Close, but rather than tea leaves from water - we retrieve chicken and the like from boiling oil with this number. :G

Great job. Using the grocery bag as a diffuser for the light is a great idea.
