I love the way that everyone's developing their own style for photographing their mug collection -- it's cool to be able to look at a picture and instantly recognize the collection it's part of. It adds to the story and personality of the mugs and their collectors.




Never thought of it that way. Now, where do you get a $3.95 Mai Tai? I have had fun adding the mugs and it's a project I actually started earlier this summer. A worthy cause. Next steps are adding everything else out there!

Oh, and I'd like a "Vintage" or "New" in the description. I don't collect new mugs, so I have no interest in the Shag mugs, etc. If I could click a box and have the "New" mugs all dissappear from my searches, etc. that would be cool.

As a photography geek, I can tell you the best way to take a picture of anything is outside on a bright day in the shade. No direct sunlight, but not indoors. Then you don't need a flash and it will look good and natural.

If you want to drop the background, any solid color you photograph on will make it easy in Photoshop. Preferably an odd color that will not interfere with the mug, like green or blue.

Okay, it's only half the cost of a Mai Tai.

I like that New/Vintage idea! It might be a bit tricky for designs that are still being produced, but about 90% of the time, it'll be pretty clear. I'll cogitate on it a bit. I'm trying to save code changes until I've created more mug templates, but it wouldn't take me long to make the change, I could probably get to it next week.

Hey Matt, I dig the green glow you've added to your mugshots!

I know that everybody doesn't have photoshop or similar programs, but I love the mug on black background look.
Extry-mystical-like.





Thanks, I think it looks cool too. I may redo my website with the green glow....So little time....

Matt,

Hope you don't mind that I copied you with the green glow. I thought it was a cool look as well.

I think the glow might just change to orange in that case

I was thinking about rotating green & red like the website but too lazy. I'd stick with green, Mach, unity!

The Fred Roberts Tiki Mug. I bought it several years ago in a thrift store and it is probably one of the first Mugs I bought when I started collecting. Thanks!

I'm stickin with basic black.
I like Humus backdrop method. I think the mugs just look good with out any distractions in the background. Just my personal taste, or lack thereof.

And I was copying Humus basic black idea.

I agree, and stuck with the basic black background on my own pix. A piece of black fabric served as backdrop, then I did a bit of fiddling in Photoshop to take out any remnants of it that one could find.

I preferred it, given that the mugs are the star. It also helps play up the colours of the mugs a bit better, IMO.

Cheers,
Gwen Smith

My pleasure!

My template creating frenzy continues, but I'm going to be out for a few hours, so I won't be able to create any new mug templates or respond to issues/queries until very late tonight. But then I'll be back at it! Didn't want you all to think I'd stopped workin' on it.
