    Drink up!

    Strobist: Light field technique as described in Light, Science and Magic: Canon 430ex II from behind a sheet of tracing paper directly behind the glass. It's set at 1/16th power at 14mm zoom with wide angle diffuser. There are black flags to the left and the right of the tracing paper to prevent spill. A vivitar 285hv at 1/16 power shot over head through a softbox. White posterboard under the glass to reflect light back up to the glass. All fired with Cactus V4s

      That is such a great idea. A+ for that. I like how it turned out too.

      Thanks for the setup too. I wish more people showed those.

      Maybe a more powerful fill light would have helped, nice idea btw

      This is very well done - I know how hard it is to properly light glass, let alone any reflective object. Cool shot with the marshmallows giving it some color and pop.

      Thanks for the encouragement on my stream - I'll be following yours and hopefully learn from you as well! :)
