|Natural Light, Example #2|
This is the same glass that I used on the previous page but the photo was taken using the digital camera. The goal was to make the label stand out as clearly as possible so it can be read in its entirety (for inclusion in the pre-pro.com shot database).
Light is natural and coming in from a window at rear, background is black felt, camera is about 2 inches above the glass.
As in example #1, I was photographing on an overcast day to
keep reflections at a minimum. The
glass was set up in a NW-facing window but I was
photographing just after dawn so that the sun was coming up at
my back. Even on an overcast day, photographing into
the sun will create unwanted highlights and glare. One has to be
careful to pick a bright overcast day because heavy cloud cover
shifts the color of the light toward a depressing gray-blue.
