Beverage Photo Tutorial

This link is something I'm definitely going to send to the students in my studio product photography class. Patric Bergkvist demonstrates that you don't need a fancy studio or expensive equipment to make a very nicely crafted product shot—even with a tricky subject like a transparent glass full of translucent liquor. A little bit of compositing combined with a lot of basic photographic ingenuity—and a straight up understanding of how to make shiny and clear subjects look their best—results in an excellent product shot in a home studio that anyone can emulate. I'm especially a fan of using black paper to turn traditional softboxes into dramatic strip lights. What a brilliant fix! Check it out at the Photigy blog.
