Here's my first real try with OCF, Using two Sigma 530dg Supers, one shot into an umbrella 45* to the right and one on camera bounced from ceiling. Used LR to selectively desaturate the background.

What do you think?

I think this drink is worth ironing the backdrop for. Would have liked a bit more "twinkle" in the glass - looks a bit subdued over all.

It seems a bit flat - that bottle doesn't really pop from the background. I'd try it without the on camera flash - maybe use that one to do some rim lighting on the bottle and let the background drop down a ways. Darker background and back/rim light on bottle should make it pop a bit more.

I would have liked to see the background made of some wood... like say an oak barrel... lol or some kinds of rough cut lumber. I think it would work REALLY well.

Looking at it again... maybe a different glass too. That one looks way to fancy for someone drinking jack. (personal opinion)
