Default does this work?

I actually have intended all of it...the colour, the out of focus receding protractor, the angle.....
This is how I wanted it to be...but the question is...does it work for others? Is it an interesting photo?

Yes, it works fine.

How did you get that nice light cyan colour ?

Directly with lamps at shooting time or at post-elab by desaturating and finally colorizing ?

I took this photo in a room with class windows from ceiling to floor.
I waited until the sun was somewhat low in the sky so that the shaddows became minimal.

I put boxes covered with white paper at the end and the side of the object, leaving the camera side and the window side open.

Aperture was to f.8

I set the white balance to incandescent light..(it is this that makes it the colour it is, the white balance should have been on cloudy to make an acurate colour representation)

And then I slightly underexposed the photo, making it a little darker.

Nothing was done in post-editing.
Only a re-size.

Quite a great planned preparation, Soundengineer.
Compliments and thanx for the explanation.

0.8 or 8 ?
I'm not very much experienced with shutter numbers however I'm surprised in both cases :
0.8 is quite a fast shutter i've never heard of,
8 seems a lot for that DOF.

Sorry if I explained wrong.

The apeture was f/ 8. And if I remember correctly, then the shutter speed was around 1/40 of a second.

The aperture is the lens opening. F/2.8 is a lot more open than f/ 11 and f/22 is just a little hole opening.

I found that if I increased the shutter speed, then I could underexpose the photo and thus make it a little darker than the correct representation would have been.

(sits back and waits for an expert to correct me) hehe I really am a soundengineer and I am just trying things out myself.

I beg your pardon.
I was meaning aperture, not shutter, sorry.

Thanx for the explanation Soundengineer !

So , shutter speed 1/40 ... have you used a tripod or have you activated the automatic shot ?

I had an adapter ring on my camera and was leaning it on the table to keep it steady.

I did not use a tripod.

Oh yes, and did I mention that I took it in supermacro mode?
