Hello all, I just did some test photographs for my work place, and wanted to get some C&C on the results.

I have never shot eyeglass frames and it was a little challenging to say the least.

Images were shot with an SB-600 shooting through umbrella on the left and reflector on the right.

The fames look nice, no anoying reflections or distractions. I like the composition of #2 since the ear piece doesn't cut through the lens. But if but ear piece does intersect the eye piece, then #3 is better than #1......

You could clone out the small shadows...even put onto a different background....JMHO...

I actually agree completely on the positioning of the frames.

These images are tests for our advertising on a new optical magazine which only uses white backgrounds so I cannot really use anything else.

Thank you very much for the comments Karen.

You have said yourself a tough task, considering the standard of commercial eyewear product shots. If your EXIF is correct you are at f25, which explains the softness. I know it is a tradeoff with depth of field, but I think you may get a more interesting look with a carefully chosen focus plane and a background fading into a blur. Or you may look into focus stacking, that would give you the whole frame in razor sharp focus.

I just got new glasses, so I just sat starring at all the promo frame shots at the optometrist for a good while, they are very good.
