Praise goes to God that I no longer smoke. I celebrated one year on March 12. I do still enjoy my lighter collection, though. They are special gifts my father-in-law buy for me. Every time he comes to visit, he brings a few. I not only appreciate them because they're pretty neat, but because my father-in-law is a very thoughtful, generous man. I couldn't have asked for better in-laws.
Here's part one of my collection.
And, here's the set-up shot! Jim Talkington doesn't pay me for this. I just happen to be rather enthusiastic about the stick-in-a-can idea he came up with. He has saved me a ton of money and a lot of effort trying to figure out how to light my stuff. Pro Photo Life deserves all the credit for my savings.
I even used a stick-in-a-can this weekend to do some portraits of my mom for her business card. I had three basic, 100watt equivilent CFLs in their clamp-on work lamps all pointed at the ceiling.
Anyways, here's the set up shot for my lighters.
