Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Photo taken with Lumix G1 and black artboard background

What are you most proud of? This photo was taken in ordinary daylight in my conservatory. I tried photos using pale green, pale pink, pale blue and cream backgrounds before settling on black. I love the fact that the colours are exactly the same as the hand dyed mohair I used for the bears. Getting the colour right is SO important when selling bears over the Internet.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm not good enough at photography to give advice, but natural light and large artboard backgrounds work for me.

This is beautiful. I love how the pink bear is looking at the blue one! The lighting is perfect too. The only criticism I have for this is that the green and red on the tablecloth(?) seem to clash with the colours of the bear and my eyes keep getting drawn to the leaves. I hope you don't mind me saying that. It is a beautiful photo though!

I totally agree. The colours of the strawberries on the tablecloth are too strong against the pastel colours of the bears.

Lovely. The little bears would make lovely baby props for newborns to snuggle/cuddle.
