While on the whole I agree with your decision don't forget that clean old glass can give you some interesting light effects (transmission, reflection, refraction, plus distortions due to imperfect manufacture). You'll just gave to find some more bottles Smile

Don't clean - I have a collection of carefully washed bottles and they're not nearly as interesting.
Really nice grotty textures, some blown highlights.

The dirt does give some different and interesting textures, Den. Now, with another 6 you could start a series based on a song Grin.


(ps... I would have washed themTongue)

As Moira says, don't wash them. You can use clean ones, old or new, for shooting anyway, Den. The dirt is what counts here, for me. I love old bottles.

A wonderfully nostalgic image, full of Victorian charm and grime.
