    Some Test Photos of my Druggist Bottles - What do ya'll think?

    These were taken with a Canon digital camera with natural lighting only. I believe that the best photos came out when the sky was slightly overcast and there was not any direct sunlight on them.Click image for larger version.

    Nice bottles and a nice job photographing them! I always have trouble photographing druggist bottles.

    Very nicely done ! I am always also having trouble shooting my embossed bottles ! Think your idea of shooting them outdoors works much better then indoors ! Obviously shooting with a tripod. what are you using as a camera and what settings? Love the Stein's Pharm. Nice lettering and design ! I'm a PA guy so love seeing local stuff.
