A friend of mine owns a runs a delicatessen and is a wholesaler in wine. He needed some picture for a flyer and couldn’t find it. So he asked me to take some pictures of two bottles of wine. Tried some different setups, struggling with the right lighting, reflection and all that.
UPDATE: forgot to write that I was to keep those bottles after the shoot. This was my second commercial assignment. Both were paid for with bottles of wine… Good old barter trade!
Lighting setup: used a piece of white foam board on the surface of my dinner table. Softbox and studio flash positioned above the bottels, 45 degree angle. Diffusor behind the bottles with an extra studio flash to light it.
