My friend John is a photographer and asked me if he could borrow a few fountain pens to shoot for his portfolio. I think he did a great job.

Beautiful!  Would you mind if this made its way to a desktop background in the near future?

I'm not overly enamored with the magic floating pen idea...

Not good if he is trying to show off the pens.  They don't contrast with the background. It is OK if he is trying to set an artsy mood.

Beautiful photos on John's page as well!!! :thumbup:

I don't know if its just me, but I would prefer these if they were both cut into 2 photos.

There is not enough connection between the two sides for me. But again it is just me.

Each side would be (and already is) a wonderful photo on their own.

I tend to agree.

I think the issue is with the pens provided and not the photography.  By that I mean the pens are random with a multitude of colours, shapes and brands.  If you're going to photograph pens together I think they need to match is some way, preferable the same brand and product range.

 

My favourite photos are of one pen and one bottle, this way you can get a more close up shot and show off the characteristics of the pens.

My first response to the pictures was very positive. After the comments from Paddler & OcalaGuy, I would tend to agree with their responses.

 

My first impressions are positive because of the nice arrangement of shapes and colors, and of course the pens. If, however I wanted to display the pens for more emphasis on the pens themselves, the background definitely inhibits and detracts from the elegance of the pens.

 

Just my .02 worth.
