Are you firing the light on camera right thru a diffusion/reflector panel or is it the angle of the picture that appears that way?

It's firing through a tracing paper to diffuse the light some more.

RedCatPhoto,
What is right behind the Pellegrino bottle?
Fantastic images!

Thank you!

This is a silver paper, but we ended up not using it for the final image.

Awesome tabletop, Jean-Marc! I have to vote for the San Pellegrino because you really aced the label. Get those paper labels smoothly illuminated while wrapped on a glass bottle is a real challenge.

Here is an experiment to gel a white background without losing saturation (three lights were used). The imperative is to suppress stray light —particularly tricky in a small white studio. :) Key light on studio right is a 13" dish (Profoto Magnum) which is fairly directional, but it did need flagging to keep it off the back wall. Most of its light was absorbed by the black cloth backdrop. The flag is seen edge-on. Rim light on studio left had a 20-degree grid and was angled away from the back wall. There was no fill. For the b/g, a fresnel was angled to graze the back wall, and was gelled with a Rosco 90 Magenta. With fresnel turned off, the back wall was effectively black (pixel values 0-7), so saturation was maintained. This gel has 28% transmission which makes it far from deep saturation: the most extreme color gels in my swatch book are 3%. Setup:

Rico, was your rim light aimed straight at the subject or a wee bit away from him and towards the camera?

Rim light was properly centered in the portrait. For the setup shot, subject stepped back to avoid being occluded by the fresnel. :) If fill were added in this portrait, I would need a roll of seamless black and a lot more flagging.

Thank you! To properly light those labels I would need something like the EL mini spot, here I only had a gridded snoot but it didn't quite cut it off.

Instead of aiming the snooted light directly at the bottles label, place a bounce card in front of the bottle (laying down) and set a light up overhead to bounce off of the bounce card and light the label.
