    Tried my hand last night at some still photography with a glass of wine and bottle. Fun, but frustrating as I couldn't seem to get the glass clean enough. I was a little disappointed with the results at first, but then I found a post on the internet about how professionals take stills with multiple strobes/lights, softboxes, umbrellas and such. Anyhow, here are the three best in my opinion, a couple with the flash and one without.

    Nikkor 85mm f1.8 @ about f8 with speedlight

    Next time I think I will go out and buy a brand new glass, not use one that had been through the dishwasher dozens of times.
