Here's my first shot. I really like the paisley pillow as a backdrop, but at the same time was frustrated that the camera insisted on focusing on the pillow when I was trying to focus on the little green balls. I'm not at the point of using manual yet, so I guess that will come eventually.
Same subject matter using a top down approach. And I got those little green balls in focus! This one also begged for a square crop.
And finally, same shot as above with some texture added just for fun. The textures included:
Alexa's Honey Grunge on overlay at 38%
Kim Klassen's Cinnamon on soft light at 64%, Cherish on soft light at 100% and Annabelle on linear burn at 54%
Which is your favorite?
