Ginger Beer

Crabbie's Alcholic Ginger Beer.


I did intend to do these shots a couple of weeks back when I did the "Mountain Dew" lit from below picture. Using the cheapo LED lamp and a couple of bare flashguns just didn't seem to produce the result I was after. Anyhow, today I decided to set up and use a couple of shoot through brollies and I'm a bit happier with these images. Although, because you can see the ribs of the umbrellas in the highlights of the Honey Beer bottle shot, a pair long thin softboxes may have been even better.


Strobist info:

Camera Left - Canon 580 EX II Speedlite @ 1/8 power through 84cm White Umbrella.

Camera Right - Yongnuo YN-460II Speedlite @ 1/8 power through 84cm White Umbrella.

At the Back, and approx 5cm below the level of the glass base, a mini Zeikos slave, bounced from an A3 white foam board.

Canon EOS 7D + EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS (Kit Lens), on manual, with 2 sec timer delay.

Strobes fired from Chinese PT-04 TM radio triggers.

Water drops from the usual plant spray thing. The "Ice - Gems" are cheapo plastic table decorations.

Post production: Adobe Photoshop (plus a little added sparkle from the Topaz Adjust filter for my great Flickr friend, Gary).
