You buy a copy of Light: Science & Magic. It's pretty much all explained there.

I shot this almost 20 years ago, while taking a commercial product lighting workshop. It took almost 4 hours to get to this stage, in proping the shot and setting the lights. This was three shots in one, using a darkened studio and covering the lens on a 4x5 camera in between setting up and shooting each stage.

  • Softbox strips or black reflectors ('negative' lighting) were used to outline the edges of the bottle and wine glass.
  • An illuminated white card was used to help lighten the red color of the wine in the glass (which would have been too dark unless illuminated).
  • And a gelled transmitted light thru a background paper was used to provide the background light.

Since the label itself was secondary to lighting glass, I did not bother to try to improve that aspect of the shot, because the task revolved around illumination of glass object.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost!

If you can only have one lighting book, this has to be it.

Another endorsement for the book "Light, Science and Magic". Great stuff in there for all kinds of elements, not just glass, and easy to understand and replicate for learning.

I did this a couple of years ago. There were several exposures blended in Photoshop with layer masks. I used a white card behind the glass to get a nice highlight on the surface of the wine, then edited out the card.
