We recently shot some holiday drinks for one of our awesome clients. We shot groups of drinks and also some single drinks with bottles in the background. I'm always amazed how much time, effort and equipment it takes to do some shots. Our client wanted the shots to look like someone had set down their drink in a contemporary New York uptown apartment overlooking Time Square. It was fun! The project ended up to be one of those experiments; keep shooting until we see something we like! We ended up with some brilliant shots that convey a sophisticated urban style. Can't wait to show off the final shots.
Strobe and time exposures were used for the christmas lights.
To make sure everything went as planned we brought on a full time retoucher to make sure everything fit together.
If you're not in the business, this is fake ice. It comes in all different sizes and shapes. This is about $1000.00 worth of ice. Not cheap but looks awesome in a drink.
Getting photo bombed by our retoucher. Every piece of ice and every garnish is perfectly placed for the best visual impact.
Making sure the water droplets on the front of the glass don't get above the liquid fill line.
We hand picked every raspberry for their perfect shape and color.
The stylist did a beautiful job of styling the chocolate swirls-It's harder than it looks.
