Trying to photograph bowls for the NCECA Clay National Application






















Today I have been trying to photograph two groups of bowls - one with two bowls with celadon spots, and the other a group of five dark, oval-warped bowls. The photographs I have already don't have a high enough resolution for the application, and now, trying too hard, they are coming out all wrong. Too shiny, or too crooked...
Now I have booked time at our best photographer of ceramics - Ole Akhøj - on thursday - to see if he can capture what seems to eluding me.
Particularly the celadon bowls are difficult to capture. So I have just taken some different angles to be prepared for the session at Ole's on thursday. He can work out how to get their translucency, and avoid all the shadows!
