Through the Looking Glass
Ingredients in glass: a photography project showing.
After getting a spark of inspiration while looking at a jar of pickles, I decided to build a small rig with some extra wood I had in my garage. The crux of it is a black backdrop, a black floor with glass on top of it and a hole, allowing me to place a flash pointing upward. With this rig in place, I did a series of photos of various bottled and jarred items. The idea was to see how these things would look if lit from within.
