Anyone working in studio photography will tell you that glass and metal (any reflective surface, really) is a frustrating challenge like no other. This shot was actually an accident - I was setting up my black cards in front of a 3x4 softbox, and just testing strobe exposure. I was shooting tethered, and wasn’t impressed by this shot at all. The 1x4 softboxes on either side of the glass were too far away and not firing bright enough strobes.
It wasn’t until I looked at it later that I realized how lovely it was. The thin outline of the glass was enhanced in Lightroom by increasing the highlights and dropping down the darks and shadows. I did clean up a few stray reflections in Photoshop, converted it to black and white and there you have it.
