Meticulously Obscure


Glass Photography

So I read this tutorial for taking photographs of ‘stuff’, specifically the glass section, and decided to give it a go.

Not having any sort of proper lightbox, but wanting to keep to a single light source for the best look, I wound up wedging my trusty maglite through some junkmail and resting the contraption atop some DVD boxes, to give a downward light into the glass. Turn off lights, TV, monitors; f32 on the lens, 60 second exposure; whammo.

Reasonably pleased!

    If you hadn’t shown picture 1 this would not have impressed me as much.

    Love it, you’re getting quite good.
