    This is kind of a 'catch up' thread from the one I posted about 2 months back titled "Left is Off" (http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34531). I decided tonight to try some lighting 'experimenting' and see what I could come up with a few bowls my Grandpa made some 20 years ago. Needless to say, I wasn't very happy with my results. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    1. f/14, 92 sec The light was above this piece, and I held some vellum paper around it to light up the whole thing but try to keep the shadow. Can't say too much other than the burnt out area is, well, burnt.

    This one I have grown slightly fond of in comparison to the others.

    4. A very overphotoshopped image. Yet, it reminds me of pizza so I shall post it.

    More of a 'traditional' shot, with apparent poor lighting and technique

    This one even has a face :er:

    This one I can't really explain, this is a 'bird's eye view' of piece 1-4, with a fluorescent light as the only light source. This is the colour version as well.

    Thanks for your help :)

    First off let me say that your Grandpa made some very beautiful bowls!! Secondly I'm wondering if you difuse the light if that might help with the glare. I really like #5 and that last one is very interesting!

    Brit, these are great! I thought you said none turned out? They're beautiful bowls, and you captured them VERY well!

    Love that last one! The second one is also very well done. Your grandpa had quite a talent.
