Lovely shots and well beyond my skill set. Can I ask you, are the coffee maker reflections done in PS or on the shoot? Also to get the gradiated background, would you be sneaking a grid or a snoot behind and underneath the coffee maker. I wouldn't know where to begin with managing the reflections!

The reflection under the machine is real but the rest of the background is made in photoshop.
Although I was schooled in the 10x8 in-camera way of shooting still life it's easier to do some things in post, as it's me that puts the shot together I know what I need to shoot to get the final image I want.
 If you look at the tonal fall-off across the side, front panels and lever groups it's not physically possible for the machine to look like that in one lighting exposure (the surfaces being mirrors) so they have been shot individually but the tones/gradations are real.

Thanks for that. It's really interesting. I imagine you shoot it with a grey or white background then to make it easier to replace?

It's shot on a sheet of black Perspex as a base and a white colorama a few feet behind.

I shot a little looser a couple weeks ago.  No lights, only my camera (although I did have to adjust window shades).  I dig the results!  But the interiors were very forgiving, so I am not going to say I can do this all the time now.   Cheesy

I shot all with the SK 35mm; captured some shots with the CF at ISO 50 and some without the CF at ISO 100.  I grabbed people from both kinds of captures for each image.  No HDR layering, just some pushing and noise reduction in post.

Always nice to see people making photographs and not Photoshop renderings. Nice clean images, Mr. Smith!

Very nice, but my visual sensibilities would have been all the more appeased had the top diagonal extended to the top right corner.

But had that been the case, would then my sensibilities have been appeased by the proportion of the image?

Some kinds of imagery appease parts that others cannot reach, never mind appease.

The best solution is to keep good relations going, then you never need to appease anything or anyone!

Of course, that's a life-skill all too rare in the digital age; ´face-to-face' developed that skill at an early age, back when people actually met one another.

Internet dating: can you imagine the scorn it would have raised in the 50s or 60s? It used to be all about trying it on...

Not sure what you mean? The machine is there!?  
The company who manufacture the machine are based in Birmingham (the real one not the U.S. One) family run business who now export machines to Italy and have won a Queens award for export.
We have a phrase 'coals to Newcastle' which is very apt.
