I thought I'd play around with some objects from around the flat and create a naturally lit image on the living room floor. I'm currently in the middle of reading 'The Reader', and I really liked the image on the front of the book, so I made an attempt to do a similar photograph (not an exact replica) with fake flowers and an open book.
I used a 50mm f1.8 lens, whilst standing on top of a footstall, with a book and some fake flowers set on top. I tried various positions until I felt the lighting, coming through the window, looked right.
