I studied a lot of wine bottle looks before my shoot. I liked the one-softbox look. I could have diffused the light even more by hanging a sheet of vellum or tracing paper between the softbox and the bottle, but I didn’t. I kinda like the harsher highlight, it pops more.
All total it took about 9 hours to shoot and retouch the bottles. Most of the retouching was done on the label imperfections. I sent them to the client last night, let’s hope they like the shots!
