Ciao Bella (2)

By firstlight
(Crop of earlier version)

Broke the seal and finally had a lovely Ciao Bella yesterday Grin, so no re-shoots anytime soon.

3 lights - rear bare bulb (with gel) through acrylic sheet, 2 strip soft boxes L&R with Lee 216 in front. Fake condensation applied and fake ice. Finally gave in and admitted that the only way to light this image properly would be to drill a hole through the steel surface and add another light to illuminate the inside of the bottle from underneath (plus another two to add highlights on each label). However, I wasn’t ready to drill through my lovely new shiny steel sheet - just yet. Learned a lot though.

{thank you for the two kind UA’s from yesterday’s image}

Hi again.
I think the proportions of the frame look too wide abd too short in this crop. Bottom crop is fine, top crop ermmmmmm... It think Ciao Bella 1looks better compared to version number 2.
