SLW Photo Remake August

I know last month’s challenge was tough, particularly in the midst of a busy summer. But I definitely got a kick out of your results.

This month’s remake introduces it’s own difficulties, but there is a good chance many of you are already involved in the cooking aspect already. This month, our remake is about canning. Photos of veggies or fruits in vintage glass jars can be so beautiful… but managing the reflections so you can still see the contents of the jar takes some work.

I love these Weck jars in this shot by Becky Luigart-Stayner on the Cooking Light website. In your remake, feel free to use whatever jars you have on hand, and stuff them full whatever you like. Pickling is great, as are jams or sauces. The key is to get your shot to have managed reflections that show the glass and the contents.

If you are new to the monthly photo challenges, head over to the Flickr group for the rules and to introduce yourself.

This challenge will run through the end of August.

  • I’m new to these remakes and I’m looking forward to doing this one. I love the challenge of shooting glass. Really glad I stumbled upon your site, great work!

  • Its great to see the site. Thanks for your blog.

  • I enjoy checking out your site…Have you worked with croquembouches on set? I need to know how long one will last. I hoped 2 days but some have said just one or 12 hours.

  • Same for me, thanks for your blog.

    Many good informations,

    oh my goodness, I just discovered you. I missed this one but looking forward to the next one. Great work and thank you for sharing your photography tips.

  • I have done any canning, pickling or jamming, but I did shoot only last week, goat cheese in olive oil marinade. Can I still post it for this remake?

  • Oh, gosh, we’re in September already… Where’s my head?
