How To Photograph Wine Glasses & Bottles With Speedlights

Learn the art of crafting light so your product photography shots will enhance your portfolio.

| General Photography


When we shared the cosmetic products tutorial a couple of weeks back, we said Dustin Dolby of workphlo was creating a cracking tutorial series and with the introduction of this new video, we weren't wrong. 

The focus this time is wine and Dustin shows you how to shape light with a diffuser and extend the shooting surface to produce a photograph of a wine bottle you'll be very happy to have in your portfolio.

As before, Dustin breaks his workflow up into steps that are easy for you to follow and at each stage, shows you how the image looks and explains what needs to be done to improve it further.

To get set-up, you're going to need a bottle of wine, a wine glass and some black plexiglass to stand your props on. You can purchase plexiglass from Amazon and Dustin uses it as it creates lovely reflections in product shots. You'll also need some light shaping tools for your flashes, items Dustin talks about in more detail as he goes along.  

Enjoy the tutorial and remember, it's all about the specular highlights!
