    Got me a new strip box, so I naturally had to test it out.

    First, the setup:

    Now, the shot:

    Aside from the cluster f*ck that is the bottom, how did I do on this?

    Edit: Fixed the bottom.

    Here's a slightly different take:

    Aside from the big glaring condensation patch, I like the way this turned out. It's three shots: Strip box on either side, and one shot for the label.

    Edit: I got rid of that condensation patch. By taking it all over again.

    Nice, except for the reflections on the label; you need to flag those out.

    It does; I think both colours need to come down a bit, but the lighting is right where it needs to be, IMO.

    Pretty damn good! If one wanted to be really picky (or one were being paid what Coca-Cola might pay a commercial shooter) I would say the reflections at the "sides" could be a little narrower, but other than that....

    Now THAT is something I am not versed in doing. Other than feathering the light a bit, which I tried but ran out of space (tiny studio problems). I literally could not put the stupid light stands any further back

    Narrow the strips on your strip box and/or use a flag.

    Oh, Yeah, I could do that. Not tonight though-I think I'm cooked for the night.
