Husted Charcoal decanters

Hi Hillary,

I am trying out a new surface for shooting photos on trying to replicate the effect that several advertising photos show from the sixties. Close but I am still not satisfied. Still thought I would send along for comments from the blog. The three pieces  are all Husted designs in Charcoal with Crystal stoppers. Starting from the left you have a Blenko # 563,  Blenko #561, Blenko #564.
Hope you enjoy,
Bruce Specht

Nice, but the lighting might need to be tweaked...the charcoal of the glass kind of fades into the shadow of the reflection. Would it be different with other colors? I look forward to your future experiments!

Where's Phani
he is the blog photo expert?
My thoughts are the shadowing was damn near perfect for film noir or a sixties ad.

More diffused lighting and less shadows makes it more perfect than it already is.
