Lighting A Dark Bottle

This is another attempt at lighting glass. I haven’t come close to mastering the technique, but the book "Light Science and Magic – An introduction to Photographic Lighting" has an entire chapter devoted to this difficult subject, and what I’ve learned has come from this excellent book.

As a side benefit of working on lighting a beer bottle, I did get to drink a very good bottle of Double Stout from the Green Flash Brewing Co. of San Diego. We are fortunate to have so many good craft breweries in this area. And I do my part to support our local brewing companies. It’s a dirty job ……etc., etc., etc.

I lit it by placing a YongnuoSB560 in a softbox behind the bottle, and then put a piece of black foam board a little bigger than the bottle, to act as a gobo, in front of the softbox, but behind the bottle. There was a little clean up work in Photoshop. The flash was in manual mode, and was triggered by a Tiny Trigger from scottrobertstudio.com.
