    I would like to share my latest tutorial. Hopefully it can help you to solve some lighting problems.
    I would highly appreciate your feedback as we just launched the site recently and are looking to improve:

    It looks like all you did was meter for the specular highlights, which has rendered your white plate and shiny silverware to be less than 50% gray. How would you soot it and maintain the proper white levels. Stuff like that is a b****.

    I don't worry about the tech stuff too much....I go for what I like to see in an image....it's nice to know the rules and then break them....but if you wanted to go for proper white levels I would add another light from the side.....and maybe open up 1/3.....hey thanks for your comments. I always learn something more from you guys...

    one other thought..stuff like this is a b***** because you need to work with what it is...I mean these things have their own rules on how they can be shot.....it's really a lot about the angle of reflection and understanding what to avoid..or you get in trouble!! there's another easy and good way to shoot thins like this...for 3 pieces of flatware you could use a 18X24 softbox in real close and some silver cards for fill....do you have any images to share??
