May I ask you about your photo compositioning? I notice it's usually with the pen at a 45 degree angle, top in upper left. Do you take the picture in this position, or do you take the picture with the pen horizontal, then rotate with your software?
Is the grey background a sheet of paper, or is it some other material?
What are you using for your software to do the post processing?
You photography is exemplary every time, and you obviously have some secrets you can share with us mere mortals.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the compliment on my clear pictures. There is nothing too complicated about my process and the only software I use is Picassa 3 which is a free download.
My pens are laid onto a piece of grey card A4 size, photos are taken outside, no tripod, no flash, no light tent or lights, camera on auto then I press the macro feature. I like the angle to be top of pen in top left hand corner the way you see them is the way I photograph them.
Hope this helps a little!
