So this is an Avon fish that still has the goo in it and everything (smells weird). I found it in an antique store in Gilroy among a lot of other cool things like a silk scarf and (Nick's glorious find) Bruce Campbell's movie The Man With The Screaming Brain.

This is the second studio project for my photo class. For this assignment I had to chose some items to do product or subject shots using a light table, studio lights and sheets of color gels. For the Avon fish I used a turquoise color gel sheet to make it more ocean-like. Fake fish or not, blue made the most sense to me for a background color.

I know I'm a strict film user, but using digital for studio lighting saves a lot of time so that I can concentrate on printing the final project.
