Here is my first consequent (at least for me it is) work on order.
I have recently mounted it in my customer's vestibule doors.


I am happy with the result, but not with the pictures I took. Any suggestions as to how to take better pictures in this kind of surrounding ?

Very nice work. I cannot help you with how to photograph them better, other than to say hire a professional.
The glass is really well done, you should be proud.

Lovely work! I hope your customer loves them--I enjoy the movement in the glass.

I can't offer advice on photography but I must comment on the beauty of your work. When I clicked to enlarge each photo the subtle details of the work could be seen. I particularly like the ripples on the surface of the pond. It really gives the effect of looking out the window on a rainy day. I almost missed the yellow arc which so nicely balances the brown one. Well done!

You might consider placing a white sheet/ screen/ something behind the glass so you can see the glass without the background adding confusion. Just a suggestion.

The glass is really quite elegant in its simplicity.

For the photography, I would like to see two types of photographs:

1- There can be one overall photograph, which shows the glass in its context, at least the entire doorway. I would use the HDR (high dynamic range) imaging technique, where one shoots two photographs of the entire doorway, using a tripod. One photograph is exposed for the background through the glass, and the other is exposed for the actual door and surround. The glass looks quite good in your top photograph, so that type of exposure looks good for the glass, but the door is too dark. In the second photograph, the glass would be burned out but the doorway would look good. Using photo editing software, the two photographs are merged. If this is done well, it can help to mimic the dynamic range of the human eye without appearing unnatural.

2- There can be a number of closeup details of the glass in varying light.
