You're welcome and thanks for the follow. Yeah, that 5 ft is a beast! I love it a lot and it's so easy to use. I used the 47 inch by PCB for the longest time then decided to try the 5 ft a few months ago and never looked back.

Been experimenting with some harder light, bit out of my comfort zone.

Tungsten fresnel spot (Mole Richardson 407, 1000w, 6" lens) camera right. About halfway between flood and spot focus and barndoors to control spill on the background. Reflector camera left to reduce the contrast a bit.

Gorgeous result! You're taking to hard lighting like a duck to water.

Nice! Can you help me out here - what is that mount you are using? I see the lighting pole goes up and then you have the mount that instead of connecting to the strobe connects to the base of your softbox... do you have a name or link for what that is?

Aw thanks :-) Have tried it in the past with strobes but never really got the look I wanted. Continuous light seems so much easier for this :)

It occurred to us this morning that we missed our daughters' photo day at the dance studio yesterday. To make up for it my wife had me get some shots of the girls in their recital outfits.

Single hotshoe flash in a 31" octobox, remotely triggered and on a voice activated light stand (VALS). A face swap in Ps along with removing the umbrella and then final touches in Lr. (Ignore the lack of crop on top of the finished photo)

Had some spare time so I played around in my home studio (dining room). Made a "rustic" backdrop out of two old pallets from work. Used black acrylic for a nice tabletop-like reflection. Einsteins on either side in strip boxes and a bare strobe with a reflector in front for fill. BTS shot by a G15 with an EX430 to fire the strobes optically. My wife and I are going to Iceland in a couple months so I'm getting ready by shooting Icelandic beer! :)

It's a Foldable Softbox Stand Mount Adapter (external link) (or SBA) from Paul C. Buff.

It makes a huge difference between mounting the octal on the B1 and SBA!
I bought the SBA and the octa together because I assumed that I'd need it in the future, in case it will be too heavy for my octa... And I'm glad I did.
I tried mounting the octa on the B1 itself and it was quite a significant sag. The SBA was a great investment.
And no, the B1 is not too heavy to be mounted on a speeding by itself.

Love the lighting, but on the second one it'd probably have been better if the pouring bottle had been at a diagonal, even from the upper right corner of the frame. That's the one awkwardness of that image. Anyway, an art director might complain, but I won't, for it is good work nonetheless.

Critique taken. But since I was actually pouring it, it had to be at that angle. I was going to pop the bottom of the bottle off so I could mount it at a higher angle then pour through it, but when I saw the angle of the natural pour I liked it. And since it was just for fun and there wasn't an art director to satisfy I went with the easier route. ;)

Nice light- I also really like how you paid attention to the label positions.:-)

Here's a tip that might come in handy if you continue with these and if you're so inclined...you can pour the glass 3/4+ full (pour with the glass at an angle to reduce the head) then insert a bamboo skewer which will cause the beer to release carbonation and it will create another head that you can then finish the pour. We've always assumed that it's the resin in the bamboo that reacts as other material doesn't have the same affect. The result is a nice head with small bubbles which you can control with the skewer, nice carbonation in the body (but it moves quickly) and the beer from the pour flowing through the head. You can do something similar with salt in place of the bamboo. Skewer/salt is also a good way to refresh a beer for multiple shots (we use a turkey baster to remove liquid before adding fizz and more pour).

Also, sometimes it helps to have three hands when doing these  :p


My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'

Thanks for the tips. I know about the skewer/chopstick trick. I'm sure I'll try more of these shots as they're pretty addictive. I usually shoot wine bottle shots so I've become accustomed to watching the label position. I'll post some more from another shoot I did for fun.

I had my cat assistant helping with these as you can see in the BTS of the Orange Cream Soda shot. And I noticed my Orange Cream Soda bottles weren't lined up perfectly after I had started editing. That'll teach me to shoot late in the evening.
