I saw an article recently on bold rim lighting, so i decided to give it a go. My setup consists of the pitcher, plus four elements. The pitcher is sitting on a folding TV tray table, which is in front of the couch. Sandwiched between the table and the couch is a 36" by 60" white diffuser. Taped to the front of that, behind the pitcher, is a piece of black card to block flash hitting the pitcher directly. Finally, an SB800 is on the couch cushion, set to 1/8 power, 24mm, with its built in diffusion panel down. As can be seen, from the truncated highlights toward the bottom of the pitcher, the flash was too low. I'll try again soon.

DMC-GX1 - 1/160 sec - f/11 - 45mm - OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8
