Ceramic Ball Jar Tumblers

I chose to photograph a porcelain ball jar my husband and I made to commemorate our wedding. I found that with adjusting the f-stop and a couple other things that Kim mentioned, I didn't need to do much editing. I am still getting to know the camera (an old Sony Super Steady Shot Cyber Shot 5.1 megapixel camera), and figuring out what the manual settings do. I used a white paper backdrop and a large window for natural light. The f-stop was set to 8 which was the highest it would go.

Below are the before and afters of my favorite shots. If I were to do it again I would story board the "In Situ" shots as Kim suggested, because I'm not sure they really show off the product as much as they could. I decided to just photograph the backs fo the jars for the In Situ shots because I found the black text too distracting.

I found the In Situ shots the hardest to edit without making it look too obvious, so they are not as polished as I would like.
