    Help/Advice with Photo

    I am trying to figure out a way to eliminate the highlights on the edges of this bottle (circled in red). I am shooting with a Nikon D90 and a basic lighting kit (2 lights). I can't seem to get rid of the highlights. I don't know if it is a simple setting on the camera or perhaps I need to adjust the light kit. Any advice/help would be useful. Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately your photo hasn't uploaded correctly. Can you try again? If it still fails, email it as an attachment to "2006 at mediacollege dot com" and I'll see if I can upload it for you.

    Obviously without seeing the picture it's going to be hard, but at a guess, using tips from video lighting, how about angling the lights so they bounce off something reflective (e.g. a white surface). This can, in some cases, create the same effect, without the glare.

    Simple. Have two matt black cards on the two sides of the bottle. The reflections should disappear.
