The Green Light (Continuous) 365/250

Moment of madness here, I thought I would have a go at the same shot using both continuous light and with flash. Must be nuts, especially to show the results :)


Two lights are used in each case. The bottle is placed on a sheet of glass which has the underside spray painted black to create the mirrored surface.

Under this a snooted light using a Pringles tube to light the background.

To the right a difussion screen, which is partially blacked out to give a fairly narrow highlight on the side of the bottle.


There the similarities end. The lights used here are a pair of 20W CFL lamps, one inserted into the snoot below. The one behind the screen to the right, is placed into a reflector, again made from a Pringles tube.


Shown below is the setup and the other version using flash for comparison.
