photos of this week


39/ bottle Zonderik I got as a gift, don't know (yet) how it tastes, heard it's a bit like Baileys ? anyway it's a nice subject to shoot. similar setup to the guinness glass, flash with softbox at 45degree down on the bottle, left and right white bounce cards

chinese newyear dragons

40/ one from the chinese newyear

geile fles

41/ wine bottle.. the name catched my attention as in dutch (and german I believe) it means something.. I wonder how you feel after drinking these bottles :-)
and yes I still have such a childish sense of humor :-)


42/ yellow ducks, 3 in a row


43/ test to see how the water reflects


44/ duck with moving water, test to see if waves in the water show up nice
(not really, it's not the result I was looking for)


45/ bought a new glove
strobe on the very right so you can see its texture (and the background goes black)


46/ picture of the day - a crouton
maya was eating some of these and found this double one and told me to take a picture, so I did



47/ playing with maya - she was playing with her garage but wanted a city and streets, so we extended it with some lego streets and then made a city out of paper

Guinness time

Guinness can

32/ Can of Guinness.
Strobe right above. Top lid is a bit too much lit.
No bounce cards used, tested with them and their reflection was too big.
In all these pictures I made the background dark in post-processing, in this picture the lightgrey at the bottom of the can could be a bit more subtle..


33/ Glass of Guinness

Took some testing to get a position where the flash illuminates the glass and beer, but doesn't reflect back to the camera.


34/ Now it's ready to drink..
wanted to test with something black on a black background..
setup is same as pravious picture, only flash was moved backwards


35/ Turned the glass around so the logo is visible.
Color-wise the cream on top here looks the most realistic, however for some reason I find the previous picture more interesting.. the white reflection boards used in the previous photo were replaced here by white cardboard strips, therefor the sides aren't as bright as in the previous picture..
