    Thanks for your comments.. I shot this series with the intention of having a minimalist feel. Will take note for future shots. Any tips on how to improve lighting? Thanks in advance.

    simplicity_ => Yeah.. waited quite long.. Each shot took about 30min to do. Most of the time waiting for the fishies to face me. Single fish shots are alot easier.

    grimes, shamid, paxluv, filofari, jbma, => Thanks.

    i love #6. very nice!! wondering if will the photos look nicer if the background is not white? somehow i feel that the glasses dont contrast out... thinking if use a dark background will it look nice? just my newbie comments. havent tried studio photography before.

    agreed. you either have to let some visible streaks of light reflect of the glass, or use a black background. you can try placing the glass on a light box in a dark room, and shooting parallel to the ground, giving a black background with only foreground lighting. having the light source on the bottom will bring out the outline of the glass better.

    however, i have to say that your ability to interpret such a theme is really good.(and unique)

    Hee ok ok will try again soon... Thanks.. Sorta intentionally over exposed the background so as to make it look as if the glass may or may not be there.

    Will definitely try again with my remaining fishes.. LOL Gave 2 away to my gf..

    LOL thanks.. ermz.. is there a name to the technique? heh er.. I dunno.. basically I have two strobes, one left one right.. both shooting from higher up to make sure that there's no reflection from the glasses. I believe this is called a high key image, where your image is predominantly white. I didn't want too much detail, so I just increased the strobe output so that it blows the reflective white surface as to remove all the details on it.. (keke I'm actually just shooting on 2 pieces of mahjong paper..)
