Post Production Techniques for Blending a Liquor Bottle Image with Complex Backgrounds

Beverage Photography Workshop #81

Post Production Techniques for Blending a Liquor Bottle Image with Complex Backgrounds

This is a product photography tutorial for the Professional Interactive Education Program, Workshop #81

Time to strap on your helmets and get ready for a deep dive into some truly amazing post production techniques for blending studio product photography with complex backgrounds.

In this advanced photography and post-production workshop, you will learn how to shoot a liquor bottle and seamlessly blend it into a variety of complex backgrounds. This is an important skill for commercial photographers and retouchers because it’s not always possible to go on location for an environmental shot. Creating seamless, believable composites, especially when then subject is transparent is quite challenging. And while we definitely encourage you to shoot your own liquor bottle, to make it easier to follow along with the post-production part of the workshop, we are also providing you with the raw file of the bottle that Alex photographed in the studio.

As a professional photographer, you can reap great benefits from our workshops that you can immediately apply to your own commercial work. As a student of photography looking to expand your technical and creative skills, you’ll find our workshops are the perfect way to gain hands-on experience across the spectrum of product photography.

Your instructors for this workshop are Alex Koloskov and Ilya Plotnikov. They will explain:

  1. How to photograph the liquor bottle to make it look great in any environment
  2. What studio lights and modifiers to use and how to use them in a small studio.
  3. How to seamlessly blend the bottle image with a variety of complex backgrounds using skillful techniques in Adobe Photoshop to create the final image.
