This time I am using red ged for the back light. I put red gel on my speedlite 580EXII. For front light I am using Tronic Extreme with Soft Box. Anyway, I think blue color much better for wine background.
Back light Silhouette trick using white wine was not showing the same result as red wine. Label will be dark because there are no front light. However, transparent object will glow. Therefore we should decide what kind of object we would use in silhouette trick. I was using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
This time I turned off my front light. I only used back light. The result is silhouette. I think I like this result. However, this is a red wine which has solid color. For white wine which is transparent color, I believe the silhouette result will be different. I was using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
I tried to capture this carrot bottle using continuous lightning. Dark background is a little bit tricky. I could not use evaluative metering unless I metered my camera closely to the object. Partial metering and spot metering would be better for this shot. I was using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
