By placing the bottle and shot glass on top of a piece of acrylic which was placed a few inches above another piece of acrylic on a black background, i was able to get multiple reflections including the bottoms of bottle and glass.

After seeing some of these photos using acrylic sheets at the base, I'm off to purchase a couple sheets to try this myself. There are so many techniques that have been shown in this challenge, it will take me a long time to try all of them, myself.

Good work.

Cal

It was shot at F8 10sec shutter center weighted metering. I believe this shot was focused and metered with the lights on,(started 12 sec releasetimer)then I shut off lights before exposure startedand waved a flashlight on shot glass for aprox 5 seconds the moved the flashlite to the bottle for the final 5 seconds of exposure. I took several shots some i metered/focused with the light off and used just flashlight to meter. I believe i got best results metering with lights on before shooting. The bottom piece of acrylic is ontop ofa black sheet, then with dixie cups supporting the corners of the top piece of acrylic i placed the bottle and glass on top (about 2 1/2 to 3" space betweenacrylic sheets)and shot with the above settings on tripod. Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Mag
