195/365 - Pour

I'll have to try this one again. Didn't have much time to play with this tonight, and while I'm not entirely happy with this, I have other things I need to do tonight, so it is what it is.

 

Experimenting trying to capture the motion of beer being poured, trying to get a low-ish angle. This is almost there, but i need to get better light on the beer pouring out of the bottle and the bottle itself, and I need to figure out what to do to stop my front fill light from giving that much glare on the glass (pretty sure I know how to cope with both of those, but, again, no time tonight.)

 

Had to clone a huge amount of dust & scratches out of the empty section of the glass, too, despite an obsessive job cleaning it.

 

Nikon D7000 w/Nikkor 18-200mm @ 75mm, 1/250s @ ƒ/16, ISO100. One SB-700, shot from about 2 feet directly behind the glass to light the contents, 1/80 power, 85mm zoom, centerweighted; second SB-700 shot through white umbrella camera left, 1/64 power, to get some light on the foam and the bottle.
