Anonymous asked: How do you photograph your pieces? Do you have any tips?
I photograph my things just plunked on a nice piece of graduated paper on a sunny day. Can be bought online at Alzo digital. many potters I know have a nice light set up and / or photo tent. I have a hard time taking pictures without some serious shadows and or glare when I use those so I keep it simple. Have an inexpensive camera on a yard sale found tripod. A always use the macro high detail setting. unroll the paper, take some pics. I run the photos through basic photoshop, removing things such as cat hair, clay smears on the paper, etc…often the tripod was a little crooked, I can crop the photos to straighten them out. The main concept of photographing your work is ( I think) to make the backround basically not exist, not compete with the vessel.
