Beer Bottle Photography – Beverage Photography – Product Photography

21 09 2015

Beer Bottle Photography, Beverage Photography

Same bottle as the previous shot of the Stella Artois beer bottle but I was playing with a color burst background which was created in Photoshop using colors pulled from the bottle and a burst was hand drawn on a new layer this layer was taken into the the radial blur filter > blur method was switched to Zoom and the amount was 80. This filter setting was added multiple times to get the look I wanted. I didn’t like the first attempt at the background so I just painted some more on the same layer and applied the filter again.

Beer Photogaphy How-to

Beer Photography tutorial

A new tutorial offering from Photigy.com and Ilya and Max Plotnikov of  Doberman Studios.  Two brothers that are producing incredible images in Russia. I think this world wide community of product photography and photographers that Photigy.com brings together is just incredible.

This tutorial on beer bottle photography takes you through selecting the most common focal length lenses for commercial work to lighting all the way through post processing in Photoshop. They walk you through four complete images both in the studio and in photoshop. Each image has different looks which require different techniques. The use minimal equipment in the studio and are masters at the post processing side of the image production workflow. If you have any interest in beverage, bottle or beer photography this is one of the best and most complete workflow tutorials I’ve been able to find to date. While you’re at Photigy.com checking out the beer photography tutorial also check out their Studio Basics course and if your a little more advanced in your product photography shooting check out Proclub.

A couple of my images you have already seen but they are based on some of Ilya Plotnikov techniques.

Stella Artios – Beer Bottle Photography – Product photography

Beverage – Beer Bottle Photography

Bottle of Stella Artios photographed with a Canon 5D MarkIII and a Canon 24 – 70mm 2.8L. I also used a single Paul C. Buff Einstein with a small strip box attached. The light was moved around the bottle and shots where taken on both the right and left side as well as directly behind the bottle. These images where taken into Photoshop and combined and cleaned up to produce the image you see here.
