    Okay, this isn't an article but its a video and as quick as the video is, I actually learned something about lighting.

    I've always wondered how people took really clear photos of glass bottles, you have to reflect the light off the background!

    Worth a watch!

    Nice little video.

    Another little trick is to build a light box and shoot controlled light from below. Mine is a U Haul Golf bag packing box. They are nice and tall. I have a piece of clear plexi and dark plexi to top it with. Put a strobe in the bottom and shoot the light up. You will generally have to lower the power of the strobe quite a bit to balance the light completely.
