Re: Best light for shooting blown glass?


It's not about the type of light it's about the light modifier and technique. For example if this is a vase or bottle you are shooting, try this. Place your subject on a black piece of fabric or mat board. Place your light with softbox directly overhead and down low. Then place a couple of black cards on either side of the subject (negative fill) and shoot it that way. You might have to use a white reflector down low and in front to bounce a little light back onto the subject. Simple one light set up for glass. You can also try back lighting it with the same black cards on either side. Here are a few examples using a single Elinchrom RX-600 and Stripbox or Beauty Dish overhead.
