Desktop composition for a portfolio masthead
Final image
Set-up
This composition was built with everyday objects from my studio and leftover paper scraps.
The set-up was simple: a board covered in black cloth placed between two chairs, 
natural lighting and a camera on a tripod. Quick and easy.
Raw image
This is the .raw image captured with a Fuji XT-2 and a 60 mm macro lens.
Because this scene was shot close to a large window it needed little extra lighting.
I only used a handheld LED light to brighten the shadows.
Retouching
Here's a quick run-through of the image retouching in Photoshop.
Just some basic refinements and an equal amount of sand in the hour glass.

Final image
The aim wasn't a polished look but more of a used workspace.

The final image was used as a masthead on my portfolio landing page.
