Still life with antique mirror...

I found this lovely little antique mirror a while ago and thought it would be fun to include it in a still life IF I could figure out how to keep myself and too much background detail from reflecting in the mirror.  It's all in finding the right angle to shoot from! 
I like the texture that the little wicker covered demijohn adds to the still life, and the pop of color in the red/orange berries.

I used a dark and moody preset when editing the photos, which seems appropriate for a rainy day indoor photoshoot!

still following,


  1. I really like your still life of vintage finds. I have the same trouble with photographing mirrors and picture frames. The glass reflects too much. Good job!

  2. That's a lovely Fall vignette. Blessings!

  3. I love the little bits of scattered leaves in the foreground. That's a lovely touch.

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the weekly link up!

  4. I do like that and I agree about the pop of color the red berries give.
