The bottle of red wine: three ways to shoot it
This is the second lecture from our “Product Studio Photography course for beginners” course. This is not a full lecture, but highlights from the lecture along with final images and some technical information.
In this lecture I explain how to creatively photograph a bottle of red wine. Step-by-step I went through the most common mistakes and their solutions, and we created shots on both white and black backgrounds. Two of them are “fancy” shots, one is a classic way to show a bottle of wine.
Bellow is a little video introduction where I explained why we need to learn how to execute this type of shot, and why I selected this particular style for our example shots. I also posted the images and the lighting setups from the shots.
I hope that lighting setups will provide useful information for more experienced photographers, and hopefully will give many ideas to beginners as well.
The whole lecture is more than 1.5 hours of video and for now, available only for the course’s students and premium subscribers.
I am not ready to post the whole lecture open to public yet. This is an experimental course and I want to finish it first, polishing the details and learning the best way to represent the materials.
This course was free to enter for anyone who registered for it, we had about a week long free registration.
Now we’ll be working with students until everyone is able to achieve the same results and also produce a creative shot.
