I am in NO WAY a photographer. I am a stay-at-home mom with a lot of time on her hands and I thoroughly enjoy this website!
This photo is as basic as you can get and I'm normally taking photos of my 3 month old. I wanted to use her or her toys for this at first but after using a few things, I figured it just wasn't going to work out...too many bright colours.
I didn't do anything to this photo except crop out the lamp. I love the light it gave since it looks like natural sunshine just before dusk. (It looks like that on MY monitor anyway...heheh)

The camera type is wrong because my L3 wasn't available in the list.
Thanks for looking at my first entry.

I think you had a good idea here…few things jump out at me that could help you improve upon this image. First keep the background the same…I kinda like the all black look…like on the right hand side. Also looks as if the lighting might be a bit harsh…as you can see on the front edge of the pot…bright white standing out…those are your highlights getting blown, but that is easily fixed. Just shoot a bit faster of a shutter speed. With just those two things I think you will see a different shot…but still in line with your idea for the shot…Oh and Welcome to the site…great place to learn even for people who just want to have fun.

Interesting composition! Your white balance looks off, though...

would have been much nicer if the background was all white.

the background and lighting is kind of distracting

Neat idea. The lighting is harsh, however, and the white-to-black transition on the right side is distracting.
