I used a Sony DSC F828 Digital Camera set at eight megapixels on high saturation normal sharpness fine quality in TIFF & RAW format. I used a composite of both images with differnt White Balance settings and diffrent filters to contrast the subject from the background. First take I used an 81B filter and the second I used an 80A filter. Both takes I set my ISO to a fine 64 and my apature to F2.8 and my shutter to 125. The subject was brightly lit by natural light comeing from a South Facing window in the winter. I stableized my shots with a ProMaster 2 MonoPod that doubles as a center colum for my tripod, wile bracing my self against a sofa as their wasn't enough room for a full tripod.
