Find a window that’s getting a fair amount of light and set up an impromptu studio on a table facing it.

Early morning or late afternoon light shining directly in the window casts a warm golden hue on your still life. Place a white sheet on the table and raise it at the end of the table. Tack the sheet into a wall behind the table or ask a friend to hold it upright. The sheet serves as the backdrop and the fabric upon which you place your objects.
