Glass Photography

Hi everybody,

for my photography course we had a task to take a picture of glass using a white background
and a black background. On a white background the idea is to create black/dark contours of the glass
and on a black background the final goal should be white/bright contours of the glass.

For getting this effect I used a construction light – 500 Watts and a white curtain in front of this
light. The subject was put around 3 meters in front of the curtain on a glass support to get some
reflection. The idea is to move the glass forward/backward till the expected effect is reached.

To have some creative effect I used two curved wine glasses. The result is as follows :

To get the effect on a black background I added a black curtain in front of the white curtain so that
we get a partially black background. For this picture I used a broken glass – the result is as follows :

I hope everybody likes the effect – I am personally not 100% happy with the last one – maybe
some more practice to get a better effect.

see you soon !
