Low-key Glass

Glass in low-key.  Nikon D7000
29th June 2012

In continuing a theme of everyday objects, I thought I would try a classic challenge of photographing glass.  I decided on a low-key image again, similar to the previous one of forks (mainly as I still had the black-card to hand). 

After a bit of thought, I realised I only needed enough black card to fill the image frame; everything else needs to be white around it so that it creates the highlights on the glass and makes the form visible.

The glass is only holding blackcurrant squash unfortunately rather than wine, but still needed a white sticky label on the back of the glass in order to make the juice show up as red.

I must think of something easier next time!
