I was going to shoot some moving bike shots tonight but I opted to stay warm and dry instead.
no coffee shots?
How do you get the perfectly white background like that? Any shots of your set up? (yes noob when it comes to that stuff)
I guess I could do my part for OT contests. Hold on and I'll shoot a shot or two. edit: pic shot and sent.
White seamless paper. Two softlights on either side. Hold on...I'll shoot a pic of my set up in a minute.
pic of set up. seamless is rolled out onto my pool table. Strobe on left is a Sunpack 383 shooting thru a photoflex chimera. Strobe on right is a big photogenic strobe shooting thru a rather large chimera.
makes my cardboard box with plastic table cloth windows and 500w worklamps on either side look awesome
I've shot some great pics with nothing but window light. Use what you have and make it work.
kill the speculars in one and two and you're on to something.
How would go about doing that? In the first one I think maybe moving the lights farther back around the vase might do the trick but the flowers pic is a bit of a challenge. Maybe fly some flags???
EDIT: tried moving the lights farther around behind but that didn't work. I think I need to bounce the light off of long pieces of white foamcore. That should kill the highlights.
When I shoot my ceramics for my portfolio, if I find a specular that is not flattering or is distracting to the form of my work I use tiny little touch of chap stick to help tone down the reflection. I can't say it will help on two, but it certainly will on the first one. Just use a tiny tiny tiny little bit.
Love the shots though man I'd love them more if it was my pieces and not wall mart mass produced pottery from Korea. J/K
Chapstick? Hmmm.....good idea!
Send me your pottery and I'll shoot it!
That was more of a "You should buy some of my pottery"
Awesome man, thanks a lot for the pic of the set up! Im going to have to try and make something smaller and cheaper, but similar
needs +2 azn babies.
It's still raining so I played around with PS a little.

Thanky. I might have to get the pink flowers pic printed.
