    can't claim this as an original idea, i stole it from pop photography :)

    the setup... i filled a short tumbler glass w/ the straws and put it on my window sill. setup tripod next to sill, w/ front 2 legs lower then the rear one leg so it would tilt forward and allow me to get closer w/ my 50mm f/1.8 and a 4x closeup filter

    shot on self timer cause im too poor to buy a cable release right now

    now, it was pretty cloudy when i did this, no flash obviously, naturual light, awb on the 10d...

    the second shot i figured out i should prob use my 28" (i think) silver/gold reflector to reflect light coming in the window back to the straws not diggin the dof that much

    last shot was @ f/22 and the sun peaked out a bit so i had more light to reflect onto the straws... and thus its the one im most pleased with at this point

    im hoping to do these again on a sunny day, i really dont wanna use artificial light if i dont have to

    Sunlight would do wonders. I would shoot this outside on a sunny day. Maybe black and white..

    What was your shutter speed on those shots?

    I have that issue of pop photo with the shot of the straws you're referring to. It's a very eye-catching shot.
