Submitted for the PG101 Round Theme I wore a shirt to match the book cover. I did have to fill in some in the background (the neckline, for example) but just used the color that was as close to my shirt as possible so it was easy to do. Put the camera on a tripod at one end of an oval table that seats six comfortably. Positioned a chair at the far end. Experimented a lot with distance from table and position of book, as I recall. Used the timer on the camera. f 2.8; ISO 100; 4 sec; multi-segment focus but I had it set in center, I'm sure; using my 2.8 100 mm macro lens Category: Techniques
