Rim Lighting

By dusfim
This is one of my first tries on Rim Lighting in which I might upload them later. Still need some improvements but on the hole I think It's not that bad. I have taken a video on how I set the setup and lights. If I find how I can upload it I do that.

Mario, a third brilliant shot in a row. If this was in the main gallery, it would have had my immediate vote, and I'd be really tempted to give a User Award.

Other compositions are possible, but this is excellent as it is.

Mind you, there's an anomaly, which suggest that this might be a composite: something a bit odd about the base of the glass.

But i stand by my first impression. This is very, very good.

Its good Mario.

I would suggest a little brighter, especially for the glass reflections, and applying sRGB rather than Adobe RGB.
Done in the mod.

Excellent for a first try, Mario, and those rim lights are certainly strong. Wilie's brighter modification gives it an extra kick. I like its simplicity and also the background colour being red wine colour, so very appropriate.

Because it's so good, I'm looking for imperfections, and all that I find is the rim light on the top of the left-hand bottle, which is blurred, unlike the right-hand one. Well, you did say that we are observant.

Really good Mario and I suspect one that would do rather well in the main Gallery.

I would have been very tempted to place a light board on the left to give reflections on both sides of your subjects as an alternative.
Just, perhaps a little soft on the left bottle, perhaps F11 would have given you a bit more crispness there.

For me, whilst I do like the colour version, this is yelling mono ( and I am really a colour kind of person Wink ) so I did a very simple mod using Nik Silver.
Just a different way of presentation.

Your images and lighting are getting really interesting Mario, maybe you should try posting a few in the Main Gallery, I am sure they would do really well there with votes and awards.

Mario, are you still a member of the Malta Photographic Society? I remember you were very active at one point in time?
