    This is my first product shot, wish I would have lit the backround more on the set, doing so in PP makes everything blown out. C&C Please :)

    Seems ok for the most part, but you need to get some black cards and work on your separation. If you look at the lips of the glasses, there's really no contrast separation between the glass and the seamless.

    Since glass is a specular object, you can't light it. However, you can light things AROUND it to make it seem like it's lit up. Think of that when you're shooting and composing. Look to see what's in the reflections.

    Good advice. In fact, with transparent glass like this, try lighting what's behind it.

    What do you use black cards for? is it to put darker reflections on the rim?

    thanks for the comments

    That's exactly what you'd use them for. You'd put one around the top and fiddle around with placement to figure out where you'd get that dark rim to make that separation. Now be careful that you don't block out some of your light source too.
