Duratrans Lighting | Chicago Commercial Photography

One of the trickiest parts of shooting liquids and glass is background lighting. Many images, especially people, are cut out and put onto new backgrounds to create an amazing composite image. With glass, this is much trickier because the background light shines through the glass, which is clear. If this bottle was shot on a white background, it could take a long long time to blend in the background colors into the bottle. By printing your general background, as seen above, and shooting light through the "Duratrans", it really helps sell the shot if the bottle or glasses need to be layer masked into a different exposure. You can easily shoot each glass above and have the necessary information from the background inside the glass already, saving you a ton of time in post.
