Behind the scenes in the studio

I took this image of the cognac bottle as a way of showing, that with even a simple approach to a studio lighting set up, a great commercial studio image can be created.

In the video you can see how I set up the bottle on the oiled black tiles, with the hard light shining through from the back it creates a lovely reflection and drama to the surface that the bottle is sitting on.

Then with everything postioned excatly the same, a series of other shots are taken with different smoke trails created either by very hot water in a small tray or by lighing a candle then blowing it out which creates a trail, these elements were put together in photoshop for the final image.
