Meerschaum Pipes taken on flat Black & Red

One of my clients has just had a fresh batch of pipes in from Turkey. These stunning hand carved Meerschaum pipes were to be photographed on none white backgrounds. The collected consisted of 7 full pipes and a number of bowls (for the Falcon system)
I took the bowls on Black and full pipes on red. I usually do pipes on blue and several pipes have blue stems. So i had to opt for a rather sexy red backing. Each photos has been illuminated front (x2) and from above. Shot on red cotton with the help of red pipe cleaners (those that have taken photos of pipes before, understand the pipe cleaner comment *wink*)
