Glassware Photography

Sunday, November 14, 2010

I am by no stretch of the imagination a photographer - but I gave it a go for a recent project, I am pretty pleased with the results.

A couple of tips if you are embarking on a similar journey of trying to capture a delightful image of cut glass..

1) Ensure you have polished each item (obvious I know but you dont want to get the perfect shot and then notice you have left a fingerprint on there - maybe even wear gloves..)
2) When photographing on a white/grey background hold up black card to either side to reflect into the engravings on the glassware
3) Same goes for when photographing on a black background - hold up some white card at either side, this gives the glass a lovely angelic 'glow'
