If you're lighting the glass from the sides instead of from behind you can use a combination of diffusion panels, softboxes, and flags to control the size and harshness of the side highlights. Still, if you want to limit the wrap of the light you need to have the lights behind the glass, even when side lighting it.

Yes, I am lighting the glass from behind and using diffusion panels to create the gradient. Right now, the diffuser on the left is smaller than the one on the right and they are both round. I'm going to have to splurge it looks like and get square diffusion panels. That's why I'm trying out what I have vs what I need for the look I'm trying for.

Here's the BTS look showing the two strip boxes aimed from behind and the two diffuser's parallel to each other to spread the light out. You can really tell the difference in the size of the two diffusers in this shot.

You can use rolls of Vellum (tracing paper) as diffusion panels and black foamcore poster boards as flags behind the vellum to control the size of the highlight. The Dollar Tree sells the posterboard in 20x30 sheets and you can get a roll of Vellum from the craft store for about $12. It's a lot cheaper than buying dedicated diffusion panels. I usually just hang the vellum roll from a grip arm. Here is a shot where I have the vellum, then the black flags behind it, then the softbox behind all that.

Thanks. I do use foamcore boards (you can see a couple of them in my BTS shot). I have tracing paper and rather than hang from a "C" stand, I've taped it to aluminum screen window frames. I'll have to look into a roll of vellum from the local arts and crafts store.

Oh, I'd love to have as much space as you do for some sort of a studio but I have to make do with what I have. Very nice!

SB thanks, Gene thanks.
any pull back shot is appreciated as I learn.
SB what helps even more is colorful arrows and items identified.
Product photography is still a new language with the parts and pieces to me.
Also SB you've shown it can be done affordably :)

Who here has the CV 40? I feel like it doesn't get a lot of attention here. My GAS is becoming more acute; CV 40 and Lox 21.

I'm still very intrigued by the RX1R II. How do owners feel about it? A slightly more compact A7R II with a 2/35 is extremely appealing to me...

Randy I've always looked at the RX1Rii but an Rii + 28/2 is or 35/2.8 is as close as I'll get....the RX100v more suits my needs for a pocketable when needed. That said
the gen III is surely not far off.

Wow that is a nice little camera indeed. I wonder if I could get the wife to take that one on the road with her.

Cool. I'm pretty sure I've seen them at the Vintage Trailer Week during "Modernism" week in Palm Springs back when I lived over there.

Travis, very cool that you got responses from Greg Benz and Nick Page. Well done sir. I bought Nick's tutorial on blending with Lumenzia and found it good. The payoff for me was the last video where Nick showed his technique for adding contrast with Lumenzia. I need to rewatch it. That's the issue I have with these tutorials. It's hard to remember all the steps involved in a given process/work flow.

Yeah, that was pretty cool and unexpected...I forgot you were likely a member of that group.

Haha, yes a touristy snapshot but we love checking out all the variations of campers/rv's current and from the past. Just amazing how much variation man has come up with in them.

Powerful city-scape Randall.
Remind me and on my off week beginning tomorrow I'll snap a shot of my neighborhood for contrast.
