Great Shots

Whisky football style.

Shooting whisky on an artificial pitch.

The idea was to shoot a full bottle of whisky on a football pitch, backlit with a mist.

This kind of shot is not just, about the bottle it’s about the liquid inside the bottle too.

The shape of the bottle determines where one put one’s lights; nasty reflections don’t help with natural shape.

Whisky bottles vary in shape, they are part of the branding in this case the bottle was flat front and back.

The bottle was only lit with one main light source, there was another one lighting the label but this was flagged right down.

Two direct lights shone on the pitch from behind, these are important to show the mist.
