How to photograph glass on a white background out from a camera

Questions and Answers:  Glass vase shot on a white background


It was a question from one of our community photographers, Suzanne  about how to photograph a glass vase, and particularly on a white background.

I’ve recorded my answer on video, and then went back and created another one, so we got two parts here: In the first part there is an explanation of what wasn’t right with Suzanne’s lighting setup and a basic technique on how to photograph glass in studio.

In the second part I went a little deeper into the technique and showed how to get 100% white (255 RGB) background right from the camera, without any post-production.

This is unedited (except RAW conversion) photo of that glass pterodactyl 🙂 on a complete white (255RGB) background.

Notice the dark edges around the subject, this prevents clear glass to be soaked by white overexposed background. All done in the camera, no post-production.

An integral part of product photography, especially small products such as jewelry, is using the right prop. The right prop not only enhances the shot but also adds that little bit of magic which brings the whole shot together. Yes, of course, the product is the focus of the image, but the props assume a place of importance too in the whole scheme of things.
