After taking fifty photographs of a glass of red wine last night, and discovering this morning that none of them is quite print quality, I have a new-found respect for the studio photographers who work on product shots.

I rigged up a mini-studio in my bedroom, hanging a white T-shirt, just so, behind the glass and using my Mathmos space projector as a spotlight. It's going to take me ages to retouch the photos I took, erasing fingerprints, smudges, tiny droplets and watermarks. Plus, most infuriatingly, I realised this morning that I didn't have the camera set on highest quality, so I've got loads of little blocky jpeg artefacts all over it.

Here's the best shot [click on it to see the high-res version]:
