Practice - Beer

So sometimes time is of the essence with, depending on what kind of food you're shooting. We have a beer here and we're going to pour it and I wanna make sure the foam is perfect at the top. I just know from experience shooting glassware. Um I'm gonna want my black negative fill and I'm also gonna pull this curtain down so that I get harsher, harsher light. It's not gonna be real harsh light, but it's gonna be a lot stronger and a little bit stronger than we've been doing before. So now I know that I can take a look at this and I can see the reflection of the light broadened by the black contrast on the right side, which I think will look great. Make sure that I'm opening them away from your camera. So you see, I shook the beer at the end there and to get that foam to get the top, but I'm gonna go quick here so that I still get this, this foam here. I'm gonna move some of these things. I just want a plain beer on what time? All right. That looks pretty good. I actually would probably u...

se a darker wood if I had it. That looks pretty good. Well, we have it here. Let's uh, since we have a little, we have another beer, I'm gonna go ahead and add in a darker wood we've been using before. Just to give it a little bit more information. I also have this beer here. I'm gonna add it in orange again. Just trying to tell the story, trying to capture the life and attitude of what we're doing here. A little bit of foam. Not a ton still looks nice. Take this, get our angle here going man. That looks good. Cool. So you could probably get better at pouring a beer but the object is time and then also trying to know exactly what you wanna do. Likewise. Now I'll just go in for some detail shots, maybe drink this a little bit and uh keep going.
