Bottle shots, easiest way to do many.

I work for a company with a large amount of bottled products, our product images have been accumulated over the past 5-7 years and have been taken by several different people, so naturally there are slight inconsistencies.

It has been expressed that we should make them completely consistent now and ensure this is the exact standard going forward. An example for consistency was given from a competitor, my boss seemed to thing all of their bottles were photo composites but I have since discovered they use computer generated bottle. Everything is all just a little to perfect, they use roughly 5-6 different bottles shapes for their 134 products so it is easy for them to use computer generated bottles. My company on the other hand has 133 products using 50 different bottle shapes, not quite as feasible.

Basically what do you think the best way to do 133 bottle shots in a consistent fashion and also making it easier to add new products in future?

Contract one person to reshoot all of them at the same time. Unless you have a table top photo booth that's setup permanently its very difficult to give you the exact same shot again to add new products. With 50 different shapes I would shoot blank bottles and just photoshop the labels in later

It will be impossible to ensure they are exactly the same but you can certainly get a much more consistent look with a properly documented lighting set up that can be set up repeatedly over and over when new products need shooting.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

A tabletop setup with a background, lighting, and camera mount that doesn't move would be the best way to do it. Use a prime lens and add a small stop or mark that won't be in the image to indicate placement.
