Most people would just throw out a broken wine glass, but not me! At least not when I can use it in other creative ways. How did the glass get broken? Well, I was using it to get some fun water shots.  I got several nice shots, but then I got clumsy and knocked it off  the light stand it was clamped onto.  Oops…

I wasn’t too upset though, since I knew I could use it otherwise.  So the first photos below are a couple of “before” shots, followed with an “after” shot, using the broken remains for a another water shot. Finally, I use it as a prop to show off a couple of gemstone rings, courtesy of Trendsetters of Delaware.

For those of you who are wondering, I didn’t use a strobe or flash to capture these images, but instead used continuous lighting so I could use a slow enough shutter speed to capture the interesting shapes created by the movement of the bubbles in the water.

And if you’re curious, below is my favorite photo from the shoot,
using a different wine glass and a cherry.
