Well up to your whimsical best, Sandra! Do you want to say how it was done? Set up, or as found? Happy for you to keep your secrets, but curious. Also wondering about the "sea".

Thanks Chris! Set up. The hardest part was finding moss with spore, small enough to fit into the seed pod. The sea is hair gel. Fiddly but lots of fun 😁

How do you set up your lighting and background?

Thanks Alan. Well my method is and always has been pretty crude. Most of the time I use a very old reading lamp 🙄. Background is even rougher. The blue in the image is a blue feathery pen shaped like an ostrich and the rest is a mishmash of tinsel, coloured glass plate and wrapping paper. It only works because Im so close to the subject being photographed.
My work space is chaotic but it works for me 😁

Sandra, you're a hoot! Love what you do. Your portfolio is like no other, and always makes me smile. I've never come across anyone who can convey or evoke such joy. You make my world a better place. Thank you.
