Photographing my work is important and getting consistent angles, views, and lighting is always the goal. I've always photographed my pottery outside on a cloudy day on my back patio steps under our awning. It's the perfect set up because there really isn't any set up! But sometimes shooting photos in winter gets pretty cold. This fall, I attempted building a put-up/tear-down photo studio on my glazing table - but I'm not sure it's working that great. Here is a picture before I attached my cell phone to the tripod. I recently purchased two inexpensive stand lights with different filters and I'm still practicing. For now, I think shooting outside gives the best results. I will keep practicing, though.
