Whiskey and Wine bottles

A quick shot of a bottle of Whiskey from a local small distiller in Westfield New York. A whiskey barrel planter turned upside down  was used as the table. The background is made up of wine bottles also sitting on the whiskey barrel. Depth of field was very shallow at f2.8 just to make sure the label was sharp and the focus started falling off right away. Lighting was provided by a single Paul C. Buff Einstein in a PCB strip light that was moved around the set and multiple exposures where taken to later be combined in Photoshop. I took 5 of the exposures into Photoshop and did some layer masking to select the area of the each exposure that I wanted to use in the final image. A little light flare was adding into the left side of the image and finished off with some unsharp mask.

What do you think?

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 Bottle on Black

Beverage photography, black bottle on black background.

This image was produced using a single Paul C. Buff Einstein monolight with a large strip light. The light was moved around the bottle and an exposure was taken on the left side to rim light that side and then the same light was moved to the right side to get the same rim light and then a diffusion panel was placed in front of the strip box to produce the diffused hightlight on the left front side of the bottle and then moved to light up the cap area. These 4 exposures where taken into Photoshop and combined into the single image you see here. Some retouching and sharpening was also added in Photoshop.

Bottle Photography – Skyy Vodka bottle on Blue

A multiple exposure composite in PS. I used a single light with a large stripe box on it and moved the light around the bottle to give me a quick studio shooting session and options in Photoshop when I brought the images in to composite them into the final image. This way of shooting which wasn’t possible a few years ago gives you a lot of options on how you want the final image to look and is also allows you to make multiple version of the image depending on what exposures you use in Photoshop. It allows the client to say I like this highlight on the left but I want that different highlight on the right etc. etc. This just offer many possibilities.

This image is a multiple image composite made up of the bottle, then the chrome lid and finally the background. The background was made by using a “lightsword” attached to a small LED flashlight with a blue filter to add the color. The individual components where taken into Photoshop and composited and retouch to clean up any blemishes.
