    ok, now this is FABULOUS !!!!!!!! I love the colour, clarity and originality of the composition. well done : )

  • Thank you so much Heather – for the fab comment and for the fav!! Not too sure about the ‘originality’ bit as I’m certain I’ve seen similar compositions – though this is part of my collection of ‘cliche’ shots (pics that are classic compositions and should be tried at least once)

    Now this is just FANTASTIC !!! The color, the composition and line which the eye follows is just brilliant

  • Thank you so much Sandra.
    Pleased you noticed the line – I took a bit of trouble to ensure that the rims didn’t intersect and had to take a lower viewpoint to get a stronger converging point.

    You…..well…..I don’t even know were to start with you sometimes lol! You are without a doubt my favourite ‘technical’ guy on rb! You take such great care with all the technical details and set up. Most of your work could be used for product adds in magazines etc. THIS is beyond perfect with your composition, lighting, everything. Spotless perfection……..LOVE THIS VIKRAM!

  • Thank you once again Shelly!! You’re a great source of encouragement – I really do mean that my friend – thank you!

    I should also take a pic of the set-up next time – far from tech. I had a white board propped up by books behind the glasses and a kitchen towel roll acting as a wrap-around diffuser around the entire ‘set’. It’s easy-peasy Shelly – and once you start shooting one thing, ideas will keep rolling. The SB-800 is really, really versatile at getting pro-type lighting in a small space.

    Excellent execution Vikram. I had this concept in mind for a while now and was planning to do it when I finally find some time but you were faster! :) And you did an awsome job too!

  • Hey thank you so much Monika!! I’ve had it in mind for a while too – though wanted different liquids pouring into each glass – just don’t have enough hands to execute – LOL!!

    Would love to see your take on this composition. As I said above – it’s one of those ‘cliche’ shots that needs a photographer to bring ‘themselves’ to.

    I love this kind of photography…..excellent as always….ps did you join?

  • Thanks Ingrid. Me too!! I always thought it required an expensive studio – till I figured I could replicate complex lighting with just a couple of flash-guns.

    I did join – infact most of the shoot was spent on pics for stock. Just about a dozen for my ‘pleasure’ – LOL!!

    A delight! Description wonderful. Thanks for the details of shoot, too. :)

  • Thanks Lucin!! Glad to share the details of my kitchen/studio – LOL!! Someday I’ll have enough space to actually set up small studio at home.

    Absolutely brilliant! What’s more to say?… ;-)

    Thanks for the fav too!!

    Someone… give this man some wine, quickly! :-) Superb composition! And I really like the clever tone switching!

  • Quick someone please listen to that brilliant comment!! A nice white would have gone down brilliantly with the shoot!!
    I initially shot this with a blue filter on the flash – but didn’t like the result then had a Eureka moment and switched to tungsten WB.
