For the ‘Decision’ element of the Interpretations assignment I have chosen to do a still life about my decision of where to holiday.

I chose several items that illustrate the kind of travel that I like and tried various ways of displaying them, shooting them from different angles until I was satisfied.


I had a bad back as I was doing this shoot and couldn’t lift my lights or set up my usual table so I improvised and set up on a deep windowsill, using a reflector to bounce the light from the window back into the darker parts of the scene.

The map was then quite bright so I under-exposed the image by a couple of stops to compensate.

I like a game of travel Scrabble but I felt that full size Scrabble letters were a better fit in this composition.
