    Nice vlog Edward and a refreshing change to landscape photography when weather does not permit a lens man to head outdoors. The wonderful thing of shooting still life is you have total control of light which any aspiring photographer should attempt to master. Not only does it make one a better photographer by manipulating light but opens avenues to further ones career in the photographic industry. It’s not the specialist that gets the work but most always the photographer who has a broader spectrum of skills in his portfolio. This particularly rings true when working with Advertising Agencies where their client base is very broad, from fashion to food, from product to portraiture etc. They want a photographer they can readily call upon which they know has the skills to achieve consistent results regardless of subject mater. This at least is the fundamental basis for success in commercial work. A pro photographer will never typecast himself as this or that. A pro photographer is a master of light and shoots photographs regardless of content. I think of my camera as an idiot that knows nothing whatsoever about photography or creativity. It is a tool and nothing else, and is indifferent to a carpenter’s hammer. I do not glorify its attributes because it is a piece of technological junk and nothing else. I say to your subscribers, anytime you ask a photographer what camera or what lens was used to create their wonderful masterpiece, you are subconsciously attributing some degree of responsibility to the tool rather than photographic technique. I urge you all to use the camera as a carpenter uses his hammer and forget the brand name and the fan-dangle bells and whistle because your expensive camera will not make you a better photographer but mastering light and composition will. "Excuse me Mr Picasso, what paint brushes and paint did you use to create this multi-million dollar painting? Perhaps I could achieve similar results if I had the same tools." Really!

    Just found your vlog today. I enjoyed seeing the whole process of trial and error. When I try this, it usually takes many shots before I am able to get one that I like. It is good to know other people also have the same issues.
