Unfortunately I can’t talk you through the process of the above image, as I used a Preset by Serge Ramelli that I purchases a while back.

TIP: For the background I used a shiny black/silver glitter PVC table topper I purchased from Dunelm for £7. So check out your fabric stores, because they have great plastic table toppers, which are ideal for backdrops for photography. I also bought a light grey glitter backdrop and a grey leather one. These backdrops are easy to roll up and store and can be clamped to a piece of hardboard using small clamps. I found that half a metre was enough for me to use in my still life photography.
