"A1 steak sauce!", I'm told after my instructor looked at this board. Large format and lighting, I own you!
For this assignment we needed to gradate light across a shiny metal object while still maintaining light vs. dark and separation from the background.
HOWEVER. I am reshooting my three objects again. Sadly I can't show you a scan of the failed image because I chucked it in a bin in a small temper tantrum before leaving school today.
