Red Wine

Active Assignment Weekly: Nov. 2-9 My Favorite Beverage


The assignment is very straightforward: Take a shot of your favorite beverage. This could be wine,beer,shots,water....whatever. The goal is to take a shot that would look good as an advertisement for that beverage.


Restrictions: Try not to take a macro shot of the beverage, i.e. a close-up of a splash as it is being poured. Try to include the whole bottle, glass, etc..


Dare: None. No dare this week, simply get creative and make an awesome beverage image.


WIT: A beautiful fall evening was just the ticket for building a fire and having a glass of wine. I took a lot of shots and rearranged the fire several times to get something that would work. The exposure was trial and error. For post processing I cleaned the glass (I should have done it before pouring the wine) with some cloning, straighted, cropped and added some softening to the fire. I finished drinking the glass while working on the image in PSE.
