With the existing shot, the trick is to find a balance of color among the various glasses without looking 'staged'. By switching the Mountain Dew with the Root Beer I would create the needed contrast on the end and reduce the lost feeling. However, that would put the two dark colas like bookends. Maybe not a bad thing, I guess but at the time I was trying to avoid too symmetrical a composition.

I could also adjust the contrast by darkening the end of the table during the shoot, or even shifting the color a bit with gels. Something to explore when I try again. :)
Interesting and I appreciate seeing it through your eyes! S-

I for one would be very interested. Elsewhere I'll show a picture of mine. :lol:

I'll have to do a little bit of cleaning first. I've been rather lax while this Covid isolation has been in effect. :)
