Photography chinaware at home

Even though I am kind of lazy to practice photography recently, I still need to give myself homework once a while.

I have a nice set of chinaware at home. I think I will give it a try.

The cup is not as reflective as jewelry, but not matte either.

This is the final image.

It is hot tea. but I believe due to light color background, the smoke does not show up. I think in order to show up the smoke, it need black background. So I added some fake smoke in photoshop.


This is the lighting set up


You should notice I put a black paper in front. That thing has its purpose. The cup does not reflect anything on side, but it reflects things beneath it. Yes it reflects something from the bamboo mat. It looks ugly.


In order to get rid of it, I need to use black paper to cover the bamboo mat. Then the reflection is gone. Later use photoshop to mask only the part I want to keep.

Overall I believe I did a good job. It took me 4, 5 hours to get this look. I have undergo other type of lighting set up and many fine tuning.
