Hi everyone,

 

One of my camera club's summer assignments was bottles.  By happy coincidence, we bought some wine during our Okanagan holiday.  :D   Because photographing wine bottles has previously been outside my "wheel house", I would welcome some feedback before I submit them.

I shot all images at 

  • ISO 64
  • f11
  • 1/125 sec

For lighting I used a speedlight that was either behind a home-made scrim or mounted in a Westcott soft-box.  I also used a white core foam core on the opposite side of the speed-light.

 

Thanks for looking, everyone.  :)

I like these with the following comments.
Image 1 - not quite enough fill on camera right.
All images - add just the smallest touch of light so we can see the bottoms of the bottles.

Other than that, they're great images.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Thanks for the kind words, Don and Jim.

 

Don, I fully agree with all of your points.  After shooting Image #1, I changed to a larger light and added a fill card on the other side.  As for the bottom of the bottles, I should have caught that earlier.  :)
