So I have a site where we get a lot of clear glassware. Can anyone give me some help on taking pictures of items like this
http://www.tgldirect.com/products/federal-glass/federal-glass-star-clear-pattern-pitcher-7125-tall/462300760001/

I really want to use white back grounds. But not have these dark images. My ideal shot would be to have the background as white as this sites. But still be able to see the product.


Thanks
