The Last Green Bottle

By Fletcher8  
I have been wanting to develop my product photography for some time and with the rain decided to have a go. After two days of experimenting with lighting bottles of liquid here is my finished work.

Tracing paper really helped defuse the light, as did the mini reflectors behind the product. I could light the bottle top separately and then merge the images together, but i am happy enough with this final image.

I am moving on to jewellery next, so I will no doubt learn a few things through trial and error.

Excellent excellent shot. Great lighting. I have been wanting to have a go at this kind of photography myself. Are you using lights or flashes for this ? Can you explain your setup a bit more

I used speed lights and diffused the light with tracing paper. Used mini reflectors behind the bottle to bounce light back trough the liquid to provide the green glow effect. Still have lots to learn but am really pleased with the result.

For anyone interested I write a blog about my photography projects which go into a little more detail of what I do.
