Ingredients in Glass

After getting a spark of inspiration while looking at a jar of pickles, I decided to build a small rig with some extra wood I had in my garage. The crux of it is a black backdrop, a black floor with glass on top of it and a hole, allowing me to place a flash pointing upward. With this rig in place, I did a series of photos of various bottled and jarred items. The idea was to see how these things would look if lit from within.

This was an experimental photography project, taking ingredients in glass jars or bottles and lighting them from below, so that the light was coming through the inside. 
There's a little more information on the project, including a photo of my "studio" set up here: http://www.zevendesign.com/photographing-glass-ingredients/
