    The white background isn't giving enough separation and contrast to the glass.

    Let's assume he is talking about those countries where the people can afford Olympus cameras and spend time taking photos of glasses, get on their computers and post to the internet. You know those countries where the people on a $2 budget over 2+ days are NOT reading this forum.

    Well start reading Strobist.com. 100% flat lighting is pretty boring.
