this is my firt time in this section of the forum, hope you like it ( sorry for my English)
i started this shot with the ideia of making a dark bottle on a black background with some reflaction an a beam of light on the background, but it soon evolve to adding fire…
i starte with this
at this point i strated to think that i neaded something…it was all too dark…
thats when fire came in to my mind…
the bottle edited without the fore looked ok, but not great as you can see.
so i started with the fire.
to do it a hade to made a few shots so i coul compose many parts of fire to make it more volume.
you can see the build of it in photoshop in this ANIMATED GIF.
all the fire shots were added usong masks on photoshop, and not forgeting the reflection of the fire.
here you can see the setup
and the final image
hope you like it
if you have any questions just ask me

thank you for submitting this BTS and the shot. Looks cool, and I think it will be good to be published on photigy after some improvements.
You need to clean the bottle, off stickers (tax or whatever you call it, (akciz?) on top), cradient could be more even as well. Top of the bottle needs to be smoothed out..
so, more polishing of the shot, otherwise it looks a little “not ready” .
Thank you, I love the idea!

thanx for your reply
the sticker on this bottle is very important, this is a Ports Wine and the sticker is a warranty that this is a genuine bottle of Port, all Ports Wine bottles have it by law, so in the picuters the sticker must stay also, if you look for other Ports Wine bottles in the net they will have the sticker.
i tryed to fix the rest
is this more like it?

- Studio Basics Photographer’s Bootcamp (starter course)
Review of Studio Basics Photographer's Bootcamp 4Maybe add more information on tethering for studio setup. Possibly how to set laptop up wired or wireless. Also would like more information on what the difference and benefits of 200ws/400ws/600ws studio strobes are.
iamglphotoJewelry workshop with model + post-production
How to create beauty 5Shooting with models is very different to doing product shots, and combining both can be a whole new challenge on its own. Since I started out with portraits before attempting product photography, I was very thankful Photigy is offering an own course dedicated to this quite special topic. Its content is as professional as the other courses, logically well structured from the very beginning to the final results. Means a bit of theory for choosing the right equipment, conversation with your clients, the preparation with a professional makeup artist, leading to the shooting setup itself, and finally finishing your project in post production. Might be of advantage if you are already familiar in working with PhotoShop. Alex and Kristina are doing a good job, explaining the choice and use of the equipment, and showing what everything affects during the shooting. Mainly focussing on only one setup, but due to their detailled explanations to it, and how to build it up, you can easily conclude what to do for other cases. Although Kristina is talking clearly, I experienced audio issues which made it a bit difficult to understand what she is saying. Probably having issues with her microphone, since her voice is the only one affected of this. Once you are getting used to it, you can follow her words, though it has been quite demanding to me. Later on in the VERY extensive part of retouching, everything is working fine again. Not sure whether it is worth withdrawing one full star of the rating, for this issue might have to be evaluated individually - but since everything else is fine, I really like this one. Very cool for having this course listed in your program, containing much valuable information, explained well and detailled.
NicoThe Power of Liquid: Aqueous photography for professionals
Liquid Photography 5I read some critics focusing on video quality, editing, and such... Not perfect, they say. OK, fine, I agree to some extent. That being said, the CONTENT of this course is absolutely fabulous. All of it! Alex goes to great extent explaining and guiding through the whole process. The bottom line is that you can't fail. Just a little bit of practicing, and voila, you're up and rolling creating impressive product shots. Also, Genia beats language barrier and demonstrates quite efficiently aspects of the post-production process. Great course!
