Thanks for the votes and comments everyone! I wasn't overly happy with this shot but it was my only idea, so glad it placed where it did.

Setup:
Items placed on a mirror with white seamless paper as the backdrop. One studio flash behind the table aimed at the background. The lamp was turned on but didn't make much of a difference in lighting up the shade.

Karen, how did you set up the lighting in this?

Super cool, Karen. I really like the fact that everything is lit except the part of the lamp that is usually lit.

Wonderful work on this, too.

Interesting. The pitcher of bulbs is far more interesting than the lamp. Excellent lighting set-up.

I recognize this pitcher! Nice work on the lighting and setup! The photo is a little unbalanced in it's composition to me. The tall light and the short pitcher are somewhat mismatched. I would also like to see more at the bottom. The photo is unbalanced in it's placement in the frame as well. Too far to the bottom in m opinion. However the tones are great with quite a range of blacks to whites and the lighting is wonderful with great shadows to highlights but no blowouts or loss of detail due to being too dark.

The glass pitcher containing clear light bulbs is appealing and the dark lamp shade completes you story. Good luck!
