    Yeah, I totally didn't think about the perspiration when i was doing this :hs: I just picked the beer up a few hours ago so it's not quite cold enough yet. I'll probably try again tomorrow with colder beer, and a fuller pour.

    that's awesome. I had always thought about shooting something through a glass table. guess I'm just too lazy but i'm a fan of a good beer :)

    great shot, the only thing that bugs me is where is the top of the glass? its lost in the black background. i think had you used a frosted mug it would show the top better. :cool:

    I like this shot a lot, but agree. Maybe some rim light would help?

    Did you focus the light through the glass with your homemade snoot?

    very nice idea and execution.
    would love some see some perspiration like mentioned earlier + a bit of a edge light to separe it from the bg. right now you cant see where the glass ends.

    I agree with all above. I actually tried my snoot with my SB800 focusing on the top of the glass and logo but all i kept getting was reflection. The snoot i've made is too wide i think even at close distance to really rim the glass with light.

    Hmmm looks like an opportunity to use the lightbox.
