How hard can it be to light a wine glass? Plenty hard. You don't so much light the glass itself, but rather, the things that are reflecting off the glass. Not much light was directed at the wine glass, but I spent a fair bit of time trying to make the reflections less complicated. Having text on the glass added another level of complexity. I had a softbox behind the glass and two thin strips of white card either side. No front lighting at all. That tended to make the writing invisible.
Brendan O'Shea spent 20 years as a musician, spending most of his time in Canada, the USA and Japan working with some of the world's great musicians. When kids came along, it was suddenly time to grow up and get a "real" job. So it was off to Swinburne Uni followed by a career in design and photography. Music production still plays a major role in his professional and personal life. He also prefers to speak in the third person.
