Glass Setup

    Newer Older

    Strobist Information:

    The glass is sitting on a sheet of glass placed on top of a cardboard box. The box has no top and in the bottom of the box is an Elinchrom D-Lite 4 flash head pointing straight up. On either side of the glass are two SB-28's with large soft boxes pushed up close to the glass. Both set to 1/2 power.

    Lots of dust removal in Lightroom, but it would have been better if I started with a cleaner glass. Also the lemonade went flat really quickly. If I was going to do this shot again, I would get it all set up and then fill the glass so there were more bubbles.

    Picture here (although not of this shot): Picture

      Thanks, it was seeing your Red Glass on an Empty Background shot that made me want to give this a try! A very inspirational picture! :)

      I love the dancing fizz on the top, it's a really special effect. I'm going to have to give it a go.

      Nice shot! You can sprinkle salt into the lemonade to get more bubbles. If you have someone to help you they can drop a few grains in and you can shoot as the drop to the bottom for a more dramatic effect. Love all your lighting set up information.
      Cheers Brent.
