We have so many talented people in the Project 52 PRO group. Meet Rui Bandeira.
He shared this shot with my last night and I knew I had to share it with you all. Here is Rui:
I had 3 goals for this shot:
1) it had to be fresh and make the viewer desire to drink it
2) keep the bootle, the lable and the glass important
3) keep a traditional and rustic look
I made the image with a Canon 5DmKII and 100mm L MacroII
After deciding on the framing I wanted I started the shooting.
I knew I would do some compositing so I started by making the base shot. I would then build the rest of the shots i needed based on my drawn comp.
After the base shot I started doing the images needed for the comp.
I had to do a few images with a gold card for the interior of the bottle and glass, for doing this I hand moved the flash so I could get it pointing to the cards.
For doing the bottle images I removed the glass, and for the glass images I removed the bottle.
After having all the images, it was time to composit it all in Photoshop.

Thanks Rui. Below are some shots Rui furnished for the shoot. See more of Rui’s work at his website.
Here is a GIF that shows the process.
