Very cute item. However, I think the background is a bit distracting. The rock base works well, tho.

White might work ok...I use to shoot Orchids for a lady and we used a black felt/velvet cloth for backgrounds and it made the flower stand out and the colors pop...Just don't use the shiny black...

I agree with the others- the photos are great, but the background is distracting. Also, I wonder if a cpl would cut the glare off the glass.

I wonder how much light would show through if the item was back-lit.

hey eddie,
first of all, your wife does have an exceptional talent. I love her work and of all the ones I have seen, including her online store, this one is the best piece in my opinion. As far as the shot set up, the first pic is definatly the best side to shoot the piece from as it shows the hat better.The third one seems about right for the closeness of the shot, if you were that tight on #1 it would be perfect.
Might I suggest for something like this that you photograph it in front of, maybe even in, a fully functional aquarium, with out any distracting fish in it. I do like the rocks it is sitting on, however, if you are going to use a background like you have I would change the color of the rock (or wood thingie) on the right side to be the came color as the other ones. You may be able to do that in photoshop. Anyway you are a lucky man to have such a talented person in your life.

Frank
