A few nice funny images I found:

I’m still working on my tutorial about still life with fluorescent lamps. Now I’m at the chapter about reflective objects (I hope to have reflective students, too…).
So, instead of the usual bottle of beer, which don’t last a lot on my shooting table, I’d go for this strange composition. The two flasks were borrowed from my mother-in-law (I block her before she clean them) and the Bordeaux bottle comes – empty – from the cellar of my neighbor.
As you can imagine, there is a complex pun beyond it.
The Italian word fiasco has two meanings:
1) the flask, the typical Tuscan bottle used for Chianti, shaped as a pear and wrapped in straw
2) a failure, because wannabee glass blowers mainly obtain things looking like a fiasco bottle, but this term is not very widely used
Anyway, who has to make a fiasco (sense 1) and obtain a perfectly straight bottle like the one in the center of the photo above, makes a fiasco (sense 2).

See the whole setup set for other details.

Sto ancora lavorando sul mio tutorial riguardante lo still life con le lampade fluorescenti. Ora sono al capitolo sugli oggetti che riflettono (spero di avere anche gli studenti, che riflettono…).
