Wine Bottle Photography

20 November, 2012 at 10:51 am

Photographing wine bottles is not an easy task – you have to capture the highly reflective glass while keeping shadows and reflections neat and having the necessary detail in the label and bottle top. I used my knowledge and expertise to get these shots for a client recently – so if you have any products that your struggling to get great photos of then get in touch and I will help you out. See more product photography on the Tom Upton photography website.
