Right from the tap....

Ah, thanks. I found a video that shows the shamrock is literally drawn onto the head with beer from the tap at the end of the pour.

Haven't done one in a spell. Pulled this bottle from the depths of the fridge and had it last night. Wow, I really liked. I'm not normally a New Belgium fan but this one was quite nice. I went on a bourbon barrel infused beer buying buying spree back in the summer-fall. None of those were very memorable BTW. Had the set up for a different shot went at it with this one and added the string lights.

I struggle getting the softbox feathered so I need to practice more. Shot through the 1/2 stop which isn't enough. I came across some matte Duralar sheets and rolls which I think would make nice diffusion material. (I have issues with sagging 1/2-1 stop silk screens that unless stretched tight tend to show up in bottle reflections. (Thoughts?) )

Also has the 2 stop ND filter on.

Made some adjustments to get a better gradient on the bottle edge. Some refining to implement on light position. Getting there.

Added the 600EX on the floor aimed up. Moved the 600EX behind the fabric and was able to get this effect. I like that and after 300+ frames and about 5 hours, done. :)

I like the lighting on the last set. I wish the glass was in focus for all of the shots though. You might even try pouring beer into the glass just before you shoot but that does increase the likelihood of issues such as the head collapsing too quickly...or some of the beer mysteriously disappearing. ;-)a

Thanks. After I broke it down I was thinking it would have been complete to have beer in the glass. Took me a good spell to refine the light placement so by then I was fixated. Now that I have the light set-up documented I'll do one with a pour. I have a shot in mind where it will be more dynamic with beer pouring into the glass. I get some additional stands and a bottle done up for that. Rob Grimm had one session where he cut the bottle so he could do pour a shot. I'm going to try something similar.

I've seen that too, where a the bottom of a bottle is cut, mounted on a stand and lined up then someone just needs to pour into the open bottom out of frame.

I'm looking forward to seeing your results too.

The bubbles in the glass look like the focus point. I have no idea why it needed to be shot so shallow, a little more depth would have been nice.
