Any time I create photography, whether commercially or self assignments, I want the viewer to feel something. For me, that is the ultimate goal. I try to light my subjects in a way that creates a some sort of mood to invoke a feeling. In this example, I've created a shot of a beer bottle with strategically placed light. This image is simple and clean, yet it has atmosphere. It feels as if you're sitting outside on a rooftop on a summer night gazing at the city below. After a long hard day at work, just take in the fresh scent of rain, with an ice cold brew in hand. Enjoy the time-lapse!
What do you get when you combine, a sexy bottle, amazing light, some fire, and Avenged Sevenfold piercing through your speakers? You get commercial photography that rocks!
I'm just going to say it, I love a good challenge. And this bottle was no exception. I love shooting liquids and bottles because each shoot is different. Every bottle and liquid has it's own unique characteristics. There's something about the way light and liquid play together that really ignites a fire inside me. This shoot was a little different because I introduced a new level of complexity into the shot; That's what my studio Digital Art that Rocks LLC is all about, taking images to the next level.
Adding fire into the mix was both exciting and a little dangerous. I think the end result speaks for itself. And as with every project I take on, I let the music guide me. For this shoot as mentioned earlier, Avenged Sevenfold was my inspiration. The pyrotechnics of their live show and intensity & precision of their music influenced me in the creation this stunning image.
