I have been writing about my glass projects and other related topics in this blog. However, there is a lot more involved, since I have a website where I am selling my glass. One of those things is taking great pictures.
I have really struggled with trying to take great pictures. First, I started out taking pictures on my green rug in our living room. When certain glass items didn’t turn out very well on the green, I looked for other fabrics to put under the glass. Most of the time, I had trouble getting a true color of the glass or I was getting a lot of glare from the lights.
I tried lots of different ways to fix these things. I bought different colors of fabric and put them on my bed with a bright light source. This worked pretty well, but the jewelry items were out-of-focus. I tried taking pictures outside on my steps, as well as different fabrics and posterboard, at dusk. Most of the time the pictures didn’t turn out very well for various reasons.
My husband finally decided to do a search on the Internet for light boxes! He is so sweet. He found various sources and ideas for taking better pictures of glass.
I will discuss some of those ideas in Part 2.
