3/52 - A Bottle of Grand Marnier

Lighting info and setup shots are available at


I was trying to recreate an image that was taken by Atton Conrad.


Strobist info -

Canon 430 EX II at 1/2 behind bottle.

Snooted Canon 430 EX II with 1/2 CTO Gel fired from camera left to light the label of the bottle.

2 * Canon 430 EX IIs fired from Camera left between two white foam core boards to define the left and right edges of the bottle.

Candle behind bottle to create subtle background.

A glass lined with orange and red gels containing marbles and a tea light holder was used as the light source for the light paining. The glass was also wrapped in dark tape to reduce the amount of light being exposed to the camera.


5 shots were captured and merged during post processing to create the final image.
