Rim lighting on glassware
« on: June 23, 2014, 11:14:24 AM »
I used the dark field lighting technique to achieve rim lighting on a wine glass. I know there is scope for improvement so I am open to C&C. It is said that the quality of the glass too plays a role in obtaining good results.

You could perhaps put up the setup like you did with earlier work.
Thanks.
