This is a set of 1847 Rogers Bros silverware. Rogers Bros is now known as Onieda and still going strong. I wanted to do do an experiment with some of my old silverware so here it is. I couldn't get the fork perfectly clear that close up...could be the reflective surface or the fact I was using a fixed lense digital camera. Any tips? Hope you like it...

Great shot....

Bonjour Philip

Très jolie photo et belle composition
Ta PDC est correct et les couleurs sont biens choisies.


Nicely done. I would suggest a macro lens, and if you shot this at 2.8, I wouold stop down - alot! It you want the bg blurred, you can always do that in ps.

An interesting and well composed shot. With that silverware I would probably feel in danger of picking the wrong tool for each of the dishes :)
As you were probably on tripod, you could have stopped down a bit to get better DOF. Also, playing with the positioning of the light sources could help a lot in getting the right pattern of shadows from the ornamentation on the fork.
Thanks for sharing,

Very good macro. Very sharp.
Well done.

Hello Philip,

What an interesting folk... never see one like this before, is it your personal collection? Wonderful shot, great arrangement and background... nice details too. Well done, thanks for sharing


You're treatment is great... It let well see the limited technology of the time on the teeth but it's nice just for the difference and cause i enjoy strong textures in object like that. But if teeth show the mould was much rude, on the teeth, we can see how much the silver is more fine, lightfull and clean!
I like to see the others behind out of clarity but just enough clear to show the basic style...

Very original shot Philip! lovely warm tones, and really a excellent angle, great!

Hello Philip
Very nicely done. I particularly like the contrast with the brown tones of the background. Interesting effect.
