Photography of silver for a design project


Recommended Posts

The first works nicely, the second not so much in my opinion. The third might be better if you focus to the front of the bar with a smaller aperture giving an in focus view of the entire top of the bar, I would also add more lighting to show more reflection and the glossy nature of the metal.

Welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about photography so I can't give any technical advice but I can tell you what I see.

The first photo is excellent, very good quality, something that I'd expect to find in a book or glossy brochure. I like everything about it.

The second. Well, you said you wanted to explore different ideas! It almost looks soft, like an embroidered pillow and not like silver at all.

The third, a bit blurry to these old eyes, but now it looks frozen. 

Interesting thread, cheers 👍

Technically, alcohol is a solution..

'It [socialism] poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.'

"There is no such thing as public money, there is only taxpayers' money"

"Lenin is certainly right. There is no subtler or more severe means of overturning the existing basis of society (destroy capitalism) than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and it does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose."

I love the third photo personally. If you didn't know what it was, then you wouldn't be able to guess. You might think it's some alien artifact. 

If you aren't wedded to black and white, I'd be curious to see something with coloured light.

Here is the original of that photo, the lamp I used had a warm tone and I didn't want people thinking it was gold 😁 Thanks for the feedback, I too like the mysteriousness about this one, there is a lot of dark
