23 Outstanding Photos of Glass Objects

by David Peterson 0 comments

Glass product photography is easiest to master with a basic setup: a plain, seamless backdrop with one or two softboxes as your light source(s), or a light tent. Once you're consistently getting good shots with these basic tools, try branching out a little - shoot your object against a more interesting backdrop and see if you like the results. Experiment with different shaped objects, too; a glass sphere, for example, may require a different approach than a wine glass.
