One of the blogs I follow is by a lady who goes by the name of tumbleweedineden, and recently she posted a thread called The Spring Table and I so loved the shots  that I wanted to do some similar myself.  This was a good exercise in composition, depth of field and using the manual setting on my camera, I am an aperture priority addict usually.  I called up Tumbleweed’s pictures on my ipad to use as a guide. Now it has to be said that Tumbleweed has used a film camera, so I have used my Nikon D700 and then processed the photo’s with Totally Rad film presets Replichrome with the same film settings as listed in Tumbleweeds tags, and have to say, really they can’t be matched, the quality of Tumbleweeds photo’s far outweigh my own, and I am really looking forward to the delivery of my new old film camera next week.  Thanks Tumbleweed for the inspiration and learning curve. Hope you don’t mind me emulating your stuff!
