Composition – Bottle of Red Wine © Stelianos Frangis | www.photo-grafia.com

Normally a whole scenery should be taken with one Lighting-Setup. But rules have been made to be broken, right? This picture is a composition of actually 4 Pictures. The only things which are constant are the camera settings, 1/200 sec (Sync Speed), aperture f8 and ISO 200, and the focal lenth, to have all the items in the same scale. I wanted the bottle to be highlighted at the edges. It is the same Technique used for glassware on black background. Two Striplights from behind the bottle, facing each other. A second picture was taken from the bottle, but this time the front label was highlighted with a Snoot. The third picture in this composition are the grapes. They came out of the refrigerator so after a short while, very little water droplets were formed on the grapes. The Lighting Setup is almost identical as the second picture (Label of the bottle) but this time the Light from the snoot passes a diffusor, creating a more soften light on the grapes. The last picture shows a glass, half filled with red wine. I wanted the light to create a smooth gradient on the glass. To achieve this, a single light was used, attached to a stripbox behind a diffusor on an angle of about 45°. This creates a gradient on the diffusor, which is reflected on the glass. In Post production all pictures were combined. So here it is – Cheers
