How I got the shot... Bruny Island House of Whiskey

Ok, so this shot is not perfect. But hey, for a shot 'on the run', I think it's pretty. It's unretouched and raw. 

Bottles, glass and reflections make photography difficult. It's one thing people ask quite often. "How do I get a nice shot of a bottle?"


One easy trick is to diffuse the light that is falling on your subject. In this shot, I did that with a reflector scrim. That is it. A scrim is a translucent material that still allows light to go through, but softens it. 

I had someone hold it between the sun and the bottles. It really minimised the reflections and made the image creamier looking.  

Check out the other pic that shows the bottles without the scrim in place. You can see the difference on the labels.
