Still building my portfolio and getting a reputation at the same time. Sadly this is a reputation I can do without. It's interesting to see the looks you get when you ask your niece if you can borrow her shoes
I did have to promise that I wouldn't wear them
Taken with the 645Z and 75mm @ ISO100, 1/125 and f16 . One strobe with large softbox above, another to camera left, snooted to highlight the rear edge of the shoes and the thrdr down on the floor with red gel to create the background colour and gradient. Minimal PP in LR and PS just to remove dust specs and tweak some bits of the shoes to remove the 'worn' look.

Black no opaque perspex
Really like this, the gradient is ace!
The black shoe to me looks a little odd as the other 2 have a great reflection that makes them sit nicely and look natural but the black has a slight 'fake' ook to it, like it was dropped in afterwards due to the reflection difference.
