    With the lid and parafilm on, it can pose a challenge. I'm not sure if a CPL will help to remove any possible reflections off the lid.

    I guess the trick to shoot such subject is to shoot them directly above, any deviation may result in reflections. Also requires an environment with good diffused ambient lighting without a bright light source what will show up in the frame.

    A macro/fast lens on tripod will also help to get shallow depth of field and just focus on the agar level and not the lid.

    simply copywork lighting set up will do the trick.
