    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for sponsoring the workshop. I enjoyed it very much and I now learned some new techniques in shooting glass products! It is really practical and informative. The printouts you passed out in the class were very helpful. I think we need 3 hours so that we can do out own set ups to shoot. Also, if the lighting are set up before the workshop, we will have more time to explore the creative shooting techniques.

    We will be doing product....glass, metal, jewelry on glass. It will be pretty similar except we will use glass as our table top for floating effect.

    A workshop on lighting, 18% metering, WB, and color balance would be great!

    Hi Mike, So bummed that I had to miss the reflective glass workshop yesterday. Would you consider teaching it again for those who couldn't make it?

    Mike - a couple of questions, can you tell me some websites or suggest literature about white balance, and 18% gray theory, I need something simple (alas simple mind). Also where can one get cheap plexiglass, I have only come across white at hardware stores.

      Lorretta here are couple of sites that are pretty informative. WB & 18% grey are pretty detail subjects. These will give you a good understanding. Maybe workshop on Lighting & 18% metering and WB?

      A good place for plexi glass is Lowes, Home Depot and Tap Plastics has good collection. Depending on what you are shooting you can get different floor tiles that have a great selection of glossy surface and texture. i use tiles when I shoot small product...jewelry, metal, glass etc.

    It was a great day. I am so glad I brought the colored glass, it made me aware that the human eye is exceptional and it's so hard to duplicate in the camera what you see, particularly color. I ditto Bob!

    Great samples everyone! Wish we had more time to shoot individual props but each of you who participated created your own unique style. Always impressed to see your results! Next workshop we will float product on glass. Excellent job everyone!
