GLASS PHOTOGRAPHY

DSC_0031

I have been trying to do something different these past few day’s and that is taking Images of Crystal and Glass.

I have found that it’s not quite as easy as you might think.  Using my Nikon D7000 and a make-shift Light Box that I made out of some heavy cardboard, cut out the sides and top to make room for lighting, it seems to work very well.  It’s not as good as purchasing a real Light Box with lights, but I’ll use this before I spend money on one of those.

The trick of shooting Crystal is the lighting and how it’s placed and your camera settings.  I’m not all that good at it yet, but I’ll keep trying.  I have read and watched some video’s on YouTube, and they do describe how to do it, but the trouble is trying to remember all of what is said.  Backlighting is another useful thing for it.  Since I don’t have all that fancy kind of lighting, I use what I have around the house.  It’s something to do to keep me thinking.

Thanks for reading.
