    How'd you light them? The main focus of #1 is good, but the rest of the dice are a bit too under exposed for my taste.

    #2 looks like a bad barn doors job. Try and look up some glass setups and product photography to get an idea of what most stuff would look like.

    Don't get me wrong, creativity is good and all, but when you're shooting products for a client, you're trying to show the product clearly as a representation of what a customer would be getting.

    Thank you for being honest. For the first one the lighting was pretty simple, i had one flashlight to the left of the camera. For the second one, I had a light in the back shining through the glass and one in the front to light up the coca cola logo.
