I got a phone call from our corporate headquarters this morning asking for a "beauty shot" of eight of the wines made by our Sanford Winery. I didn't have the bottles on hand, but I'd shot them individually in that white room I've mentioned, so I combined those individual shots.
For the background I used a photo I'd taken of their barrel room a couple of years ago and I made a table out of an eliptical selection filled with brown. Then I "reflected" (and distorted) the bottles on the "table surface" and added a screw pull from my three-bottle Chimney Rock photo. An hour after the phone call, they had their beauty shot. I was told Anthony Terlato (founder and chairman of the board) loved it.
C&C welcome as always.
