First, these are images of glasses. While glass is transparent, an image of glass is not. If you click on this image, you`ll see what this work was created from. It`s another piece of "homework" I do to test my mental skills, or lack of them.
I created this challenge for myself to see what can be made to look transparent from different ways to apply multiple parts of the two images I took. When I think of a problem I`ll try to solve, I try & start with the most basic components, as rough as they may be. Instead of setting up a glass & try to make it conform to what I envisioned the final look would be, I just took a glass by the stem & shot the bowl. I then grabbed it by the bowl & shot the stem. That`s it. From those two images I spent hours & hours solving the problem of transparency. No other parts were used except from the two rough shots.There are a few more problems in the image, but I may not be able to correct them. If you see anything that does not look correct, please comment on it. I`ll see if I can explain it away. hah.
