Greetings,

Added adjustable paper holders to my new table and decided to test shoot some bubbles ;)

Had a heck of a time getting the label clear then "discovered" the writing on the back was showing through, sigh...

Windex bottle, slightly shaken.

Light table set up, 30" x 30" x 1/4" plate glass and banner paper.

Literally a snap shot of a glass shrimp bowl by Lee Brady, no adjustments to the light stands, just replaced the Windex bottle with the glass piece.

C & C welcome.

Cheers, Don

I do like the even-ness of the bottom lighting, I think it shows off the piece well. I'm just wondering what the reflections on top are from?

Top of the bottle or top of the glass bowl? :)

Doesn't matter, it's the umbrella in the glass piece and the bulbs on the bottle...

Cheers, Don

Oh, well, the glass bowl. I was assuming the windex bottle was just for testing.
Anyways, yeah, I do like the underlighting effect on the glass dish - nice and even, regardless of angle.

Don, you will be a studio lighting superstar pretty soon.

It definitely is a different kind of search for the "perfect" shot :)

Well, no, but I was assuming that the Windex bottle picture wouldn't be going up in a gallery somewhere...

NVM.

I like the way the bowl looks lit from underneath - I think it's a nice way to do glass

Greetings,

I reshot the Windex bottle with a light tent, the "shine" is much more even and the text on the back of the label wasn't a problem....

And just for the heck of it, HOT Sauce :)

I really like the hot sauce, it really seems to be floating in white space.
