Taste the rainbow

    Erin made some skittles vodka. The brightly coloured bottles made a great prop for a photo. So I played with a little off camera flash and came up with this as my best shot. The adjacent photo has instructions on how to make Skittles Vodka.

    There is one snooted strobe about 6" behind the yellow bottle. Triggered by Nikon CLS. The background is about 15" behind the bottles.

    and.duncan, ausRach, penguincakes, and 54 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Those look delicious! As much a function of the photography as the skittle vodka, I think :)

      Isn't it amazing how colour changes objects so drastically? I really like the simplicity of this! It was on the Top Flickr too!

      Thanks for all the great comments everyone. I'm astonished that it's made it into explore. And to think I was about to pack all my gear up before taking this one!

      twr39 has a good link on his photo which may help anyone looking to make it.

      The colours on yours look nice and strong. Just try adding a flash behind the bottles (or a really strong desk lamp if you don't have one), and they'll pop like this.

      hmm.. skittles vodka.. interesting.
      Though I think it's so bright it looks more like poison.. but than again alcohol is poison.. (but a fun one :P)

      Where did you get these bottles from? I'd love to try this.

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      Hi michael. My wife got the bottles from some cheap homewares place I think. Sorry I can't be more specific. If you look around there are lots of different bottles to try and i think they'd all look great.
