    Title or Location: On my rural property in north Texas
    I was rather new to photography and wanted to try Still Life photography. I set up this scene in my barn. The barn doors were open but there was still not enough natural light to support the aperture I wanted to shoot with so I supplemented the natural light with a 24"x36" soft box. I shot with a Canon 6D Mark II camera with a Tamron 23x70mm lens. I then post processed the picture by converting the photo to black and white in Photoshop.
