After all this wine I need a beer.


I've been practising shooting wine bottles today... probably the most exacting product you can do. Most of the day... only 8 photos and two styles! But it is all about perfecting and replicating the different styles in the future.

Style 1. Bottle Side lit and label front lit with the front light highlights on the glass removed in photoshop and minimal perspective distortion.

Style 2. Front and back lit at 45 degrees with a reflector filling the label and a bit of perspective distortion for 'animation'.

This is the setup for Style 2... (I occasionally convert my studio into a loungeroom).

I know... boring post... but I'm gaging for a beer.
