I shot this picture with a blue horizon light to make the liquid pop. The ingredients for this picture were 4 lights, 1 filter, black plexi-glass, color gel(s), some acrylic ice cubes, a glass, and Celestial Seasonings, Sleepy Time Tea. Often times a substitute liquid is used along with other 'look a like items.'
Technically drink photography is food photography, but these deserve their own page.
As if you hadn't already guessed this is two different images comped into one. I first shot the bottle and then the glass of olives. The glass was part of the Bombay Saqhire Gift set. I wanted to create a contrast of images and I felt this was the way to do it. I didn't want to do just 'another martini picture.' I wanted to create something unique and eye catching. It worked!
A creative product photo.
This is one of my earliest drink photo's, I had recently discovered martini's and I fell in love with the design of the glass. This photo was from a series of photographs that pushed my photography into a whole other area. I liked the repetition of form between the glass and the shadow, as well as, the light refracting through the water and orange food coloring.

I'm currently focused on this project and new images will be arriving soon.
, I've learned over the years is a fun and interesting subject. There are so many different variations of colors, glasses, bottles, etc, that drinks can be shot in a limitless amount of situations. From elegant and classy, to fun and creative, or just simple use of nature, drink photography deserves it's own catagory.
