Woven Basket Illusion

Re-shoot for photographic lighting critique. Ugly holder.

      Bill, I like the way the background goes from snow white to coal black. Did your cat give you that idea?

      I don't think the Anasazi could have done any better with their lighting techniques.

      Bill, l find the holder distracts from the wonderful bowl. l know it is awkward to hold a form this shape but this holder is a little overpowering. Apart from that great photo.

      Robert, I suppose that he did -- he said to buy Flotone Studio Gray Graduated background "paper" (it is actually a sheet of PVC plastic). B&H sells it. Varitone is another brand that is similar.

      Mike, I agree. I posted this specifically for John Lucas to critique because I knew that the support thing was a big distraction. If you look in the Tips forum, he shows how he handles the issue. He said that he has tried all sorts of props and none work well if they are visible. The lighting is also a bit too flat and I need to work on the shadows to add some depth to the image.

      Beautiful basket bowl, Bill!   Bold and vibrant colors and it makes me wonder how many hours you have invested in this one!
