Photography Background Trick

Posting Number 2708   Date: 05/09/17     Return to Posting List

from Margaret Malloy

I use a pristine white linen tablecloth draped from a dresser mirror as a backdrop if Im photographing a number of things but when I dont have the time or inclination to do all the set up and when close on color is good enough, this is what I do.

This was taken with my phone. I usually crop out the tell-tale edges of the image.

On my monitor the amber loses some of its golden tone and the blue is more of a peacock (Celeste?) than it looks here. But those are issues I have with my tablecloth backdrop, good quality cameras and just about every kind of lighting I can think of as well.

This also has acted as a prod to share this pitcher which I believe is # 6008 but I would appreciate someone saying yea or nay because I dont have a lot of confidence in my C-S ID skills.

The amber matches an amber 5194 compote I have.

It is unsigned and the bottom is ground flat and highly polished.

8 1/2 tall

5 1/2 across

Thank you
