You know how hard it is to photograph glasses. You have to be gareful with a lot of things. Fingerprints, lights, light reflections etc etc. But in this case the hardest part was to make those pencils bend over.

Typical 3 light set up. Two flashes on the sides and above the glasses and one for the background.

Pretty good, but all three are lit differently
shadows in each one is different, center glass has disturbing white ring at
the top

Cool, I love the background colour, lighting overall is very nice too. I love your idea I would have maybe added a lil umbrella to a glass, and a fruit of some sort to another to add more colour and differentiate each glass

Very nice non the less =)
