currently i'm using white paper as the background..
you mean by backlighting is to put some extra lights behind the object right?

1. Go to the library and look for books on product photography. Should be around 770 or 778 or thereabouts.

2. Join a still life class (eg. the ones offered by SLCC). This will be rapid ramp-up, and your teacher will correct your mistakes (which you will not get if you are just reading books).

You can try shooting through the backdrop so that it will glow and illuminate the bottle from behind revealing the colour and contents.

Check out this website, scroll to the bottom, their example is for a bottle.

I just ordered the kit, Photoflex First Studio Kit from Cathay Photo, $420 before GST.
