I've been trying out different lighting and setup arrangements for shooting clear stemware, aiming for a low-key image with the glasses defined by side highlights. Here, a gathering of 7 different glasses; now I think I want to throw a party!
2/15 2nd Place - DD
Exif: F Number: 22, Exposure Bias Value: -1.00, ExposureTime: 1/2 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 6D
Bob Cournoyer February 23, 2015Now you're cookin' with gas! Great light/setup. Love that, other than the two in front, you can't tell which top goes to which bottom of the glasses..... #1608578
Bob Cournoyer February 23, 2015Oops, can't edit a comment.....looks like way more tops than stems.... #11252866

Michelle Alton February 24, 2015Wow! This takes your last set of glasses to the next higher plane...or maybe even higher. If this were hanging on a wall in our house, I would probably stare at it endlessly. I've never seen anything quite like this, with such intriguing light and texture. #11253523
