Anchor Steam

Setup shot here


My favorite beer in all the world - I couldn't believe it when my local Tesco started stocking the stuff - Who says the US doesn't produce fantastic beer!


Strobist info - Small Pentax af200 which is a brilliant mini flash which is great for hiding behind things on full power. This is an auto flash however the power can be set to full by covering the light sensor on it with tape - you can also cover with nd filters to change the relative power settings. This is behind the bottle which has white paper attached to it to light the liquid.


Canon 430ez on 1/4 power with blue gel onto black rollerblind background which I got recently from Ikea - it makes a superb and tidy background. Canon 4304ez on 1/4 power overhead into softbox to light the label on the bottle and the steam....... Steam provided by pond mister. Curves work in photoshop and layered 2 shots to get some extra steam on the upper right hand side.


Bit complicated this one so will post a setup shot although the setup was too big for my 50mm lens - 3 shots to follow.
