Well, I am defintely starting to enjoy still life in the studio a bit more. These were taken on New Years Eve - allowing for me to be home precisely 45 seconds before midnight. Anyways, my original idea of the shoot didn't go over very well. It was suppose to be more of a side backlit type thing, where the white wine would be see through (as seen here) and the red wine would 'show' through the green bottle (I was trying to 'recreate' an image I had seen) but unfortunately the green bottle was the largest pain in the rear and wouldn't allow any red to show through. It was probably that I wasn't patient enough with my light set up. So I reverted to putting the bottles on a reflector board either pointing directly towards the back background or right into the softbox. Relatively neat effect - but something I need to work on. Any critique, ideas etc. would be much appreciated. Happy New Year TPF 1. Here is what I was originally attempting gone wrong 2. Abstract or just plain boring? 3. Now, this one I don't know about. I am trying to determine if the 'suspended' upper portion of the bottle works. 4. 5. The simply 'classic' look.
