I've posted a few shots of this pitcher, in the past.  I keep coming back to it because it looks so "elegant".


I tried something different this time.  The first image was shot with 3 speed-lights, 2 soft boxes and a scrim.




However, I changed things for the last two images.  I took away one soft box and turned on the overhead light in my "studio".







Frankly, I quite like the results.  


Thanks for looking, everybody.  :)

Excellent images!


First image is good, but I think the second one is best.  Why?


First image, not a lot of separation. 

Harsh light, lots of reflection.  Looks like the blast from the flash came directly from the front.


2nd Image, well lit, lots of separation, you can see the depth and texture of the pitcher.  The color is also excellent.

- minimal reflection and the background is nicely separated from the subject. Nice hit of color and light as well

- light looks diffused as well.

- in my opinion, a perfect exposure.


3rd image is good, but over exposed.

- lighting is harsh, but not like the first image.

- again, too much reflection off the pitcher on the left.
