GLASS TABLE TOP photography

By placing objects on a large sheet of glass on blocks above a background, and lighting them in a specific manner, objects can appear to suspend in space in the resulting photograph. Setting up these shots can take a long time especially when a black background is chosen. However, because of the reflective nature of glass any bright area in the wrong position will cause a reflection and be registered in the final image. Even the chrome of the tripod can become a problem and the offending area might have to be draped in black cloth. A large cloth with a hole cut in it to poke only the lens of the camera through is ideal in this situation.
