Help A Girl Out

I finally got a new camera last week. My old camera was 7 years old! That means it time to explore photographing my work.  I typically photograph my work with the standard graduated background, because that’s the format you have to use to submit your work to art fairs, exhibitions, etc.,

Since I’ve been spending a lot of time of Pinterest looking at different household wares I thought it was time to switch it up and take lifestyle photographs of my work.

What do you think?  Can you visualize my work in your home better? Is the natural daylight more affective? Any feedback would be appreciated!

    I’m partial to the photos of the stacked bowls and bicycle cups. The background is simple enough not to compete with the graphics, but still implies a countertop home setting.

    I like the 2 bowls stacked on the slab in the 1st picture. I don’t think it’s distracting like the placemat. The sill is more my style, but agree with previous poster that it might take away from your work. I like the size of that first photo.. the vantage point… makes a TALL look. lovely work.

    I’ve always kind of liked your photos the way they were, but maybe if you added something organic, like fruit. Or even group a couple of different pieces. Of course, I should probably take my own advice.

    Absolutely love the natural light, wood and light colored background. The beauty of the photos makes it very easy to ‘want to buy’ for home and gifts!
