I would move the glass farther from the background and like the others suggested bounce some light off the back. Also, I would pull the side lights back a little bit to give a softer wraparound.

Like others have said, you need to turn off the flash and light from the outside indirectly. There are some good (inexpensive) light tents just for this.

You also want to bump up the exposure - you want to blow out the background completely making it 100% white.

Try somthing like this
http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-3...ords=light+box


light liquid from behind or the sides.

Bounce the flash off a white wall then throught the light box.
It will result in a very soft source of light

I have a couple of those CowboyStudio light boxes - they work great and fold away nicely when not in use.

You inspired me to go out and get a light tent of my own. Turns out one of the ebay sellers is in town so I picked it up directly. Pulled out my old studio lighting stuff. I hadn't used in about 15 years and was never that proficient then.

Here is my first attempt at using it.

I've got to buy one of those portable light boxes. Nice results.
