I used a small desk lamp placed behind a cut-out of a beer bottle I drew on piece of white cardboard. The white background produced too much glare behind the bottle when the light from the desk lamp shone through. I taped a black sheet of 8x10 paper to the back of the cut-out to reduce the glare.
I lit the front of the bottle with a floor lamp. All light sources are fluorescent.
I must admit this was a lot of work. I have new found respect for food photographers. I assume they spend hours getting the lighting just right. #beertography #sessionale
