One of the "product shots" for Stewie's website. I feel they turned out quite well.


Canon EOS350D, Canon EFS 60mm. f/14 1/250 second ISO200. Tripod.


Lighting: The recycled glasses are sat on a large mirror. One Nikon SB28 (1/32 power) firing from behind and below the mirror towards the wall behind (with white card taped to it). Virtually no ambient light. The glasses are in a tunnel of black (sides and above) just out of frame made of MDF boards painted with matt black paint. Fired with Pocket Wizard Plus II. Forgot to get a setup shot before dismantling :(


Post: Brought in the levels slightly to clean up the background and bordered using Gimp/Linux.


Comments on improvement always welcome... My first thoughts are that the front glass is not perfectly clean, shown up by the wine, but then Stewie was cleaning and placing the glasses and the photos are for him.


The sticker on the bottom of the front glass is still on, visible to the right of the base.


The horizon is not dead level, but the glasses look upright so the mirror was probably not square to the plane of the "film".
