Working in the studio is calming

Today was the calm after the storm. The storm being yesterday's 483 shot fun at the London Children's Museum.

Today I shot a still life in the studio. I've had a few problems with my 300mm lens sticking open... as well as the angle of coverage being too wide for my small space... so I shot the still life today on the 450mm Fuji C lens.

This was the first time I've shot with the bellows stretched all the way open. The bellows extension was 34" which I called a Bellows Factor of two stops.
I'm happy how this one turned out. I still can't get a jet-black background without burning in the print but the contrast and exposure seem right. The 450mm treated the background angle of view better than the 300mm did as well.
