Experiments with glaze combos and photographing


I was asked to make some salt and pepper shakers recently.  Someone asked why I never made salt and pepper shakers with the amber, green yellow combination.  Well, the answer is I’ve never thought to.  I think I was afraid that the green and amber glaze would run.  I love this combo in bowls.  Here are my experiments in that glaze combo on salt and pepper shakers. 

Also, I took these pics.  What do you think?  How do the images look?  What do you suggest for the next around of images.  I would appreciate all the help I can get.

    Hey Connie,
    I think they look great. I was so taken with the forms that I didn’t even think about the photography so in my book, that must be good. One question, do you have a light meter on your camera where you can take 3 shots + or – the middle section? ( Not sure if this makes sense or not…)I think the 3rd one looks the most uniform with the black and grey tone.

    LOVE the pieces and I like the new vase on the opening page as well!!
    ( I’ve got to make some salt/pepper shakers again soon!)

    Thanks Jen. That’s a compliment when you forgot to look at the how the photograph looks. I hope I’m getting it.
