Studio shoot - vintage blanket and lunch boxes

The subject of this meet-up is to capture a blanket over 30 years old kept safe, but ragged and balled-up. I don't have the actual item yet.. but it's fluffy, old and light blue / white.. more of a pile of fluff.. and I'd like to capture it in a way that shows it's age and loving nature.. maybe pile it up in a ball or pile.. or spread out.. not sure.. but something interesting.. and suggest using selective focus to make it interesting and approachable.. is there a way to capture it's age or beauty.. it's love between it and it's owner? Brainstorm that one.. not sure if the owner will be available.. but I'm going to ask her.

Do we shoot on white, black, grey, wood, etc?? The example below.. I found on web.. to show what condition the "blanket" will be in.. more of a big ball of yarn..  I'd like to make this image so good.. it could be a book cover. If you own an old sleepy blanket, please bring it.


This just in: we'll also be shooting some vintage lunch boxes for the March First Friday promotions since we'll be using the same set-up. We'll have a half dozen vintage metal lunch boxes and some thermos examples. We'll use the shots the for the flyer for Blue Dot's March First Friday. Some neat rust and detail. If you have a lunchbox, bring it.

    Somebody left a speedlight flash.. check your bag... missing something? I'm at the studio Sat at 1130 and Sun 8-noon. Or next week at my office.

    I did some pre-lighting for Friday to test what could work. I uploaded three images to the group photo album just now to give you an idea of what could be done. But open to other ideas on lighting.

    I like Frank's suggestion of a cat.

    Thinking of a white cat in this shoot.
    Just a thought.
