This shot was a lot of trial and error. Direct lighting just did not work out with these bottles. The light would pick up all the finger prints and dust on the glass. I put these on my window, took out the screen and then turned off all the lights in the room so it was pitch black. Then I set the camera to expose for about 10 seconds, while I ran a maglite all around the base of the bottles. When direct lighting doesn't work, use indirect lighting!
