Fun fact about me: I collect rum. I'm no millionaire, but I've got a couple dozen bottles of varying origins and ages. I recently took delivery of this 007 Limited Edition Blackwell Rum (Jamaican), and I thought to myself, "Maybe I want to try a still life setting to showcase this rum?" I thought, what's typical "Bond" material? All I had was the liquor itself, a James Bond box set of blueray discs, and a toy pistol. I whipped this together with my a6400 and Sony 35mm f1.8 on a tripod with a mini led panel handheld at 45 degrees. Feedback is welcome.

Administrator, if the picture with the toy gun is found to be offensive, I apologize in advance and if you need to delete it, I understand.

Toy guns!!
Haha yes indeed. Though now I wish it was a replica of the iconic Walther PPK, but only a real cinema nerd (or gun collector) would care for the difference.

I'm not a cinema nerd but I am one gun short of a good collection. Thanks, I appreciate seeing a fine firearm just like I appreciatre a fine camera or lens, which reminds me, I'm one lens short of what I really need also. :cool:

That hardwood floor looks wonderful. It must be old but restored well.
Its actually a table! I love the look of reclaimed wood; I have this theme running from my dining room to my bar area. I was even thinking of going dumpster diving for pallets to create some photography backdrops at some point this year.

Be careful with pallets. Many are treated with toxic chemicals for pest control.
