Oil Can Project – OCP08

I’m back to the oil cans. I had spied this can during one of my trips to The Eclectic Chic antique store but my hands were already full! Luckily, someone was paying attention and I found this one under the Xmas tree this year. Apparently I was a little better behaved this year… LOL

I have been playing with the lighting and tried for more side light in this picture. I wanted to add some shadowing which I believed would give the can more depth. I’m not sure I succeeded but it was fun (and frustrating) trying to figure it all out. I think I need a few more items for my “studio” (OK, corner of my office on a TV tray) in order to make the post processing a little easier. Takes my a little bit of time to mask out the backdrop.
