Default schweddy bottles

I shot this product before. The asked me to refresh their photos after a label redesign. They also wanted condensation on the bottles this time.

One challenge with this package is the heat-shrink sleeves do not shrink up evenly, so the logo was distorted and some of the edges needed to be tweaked a bit. The condensation on the bottles makes that kind of editing a bit more challenging.

Well, I'd say you nailed it. Probably look and nit pick it but to me they would be just that, little nits. Like why the red one is 1/128th of an inch below the other 2? Stuff like that.

I could not do any better, after 100 tries.

So a little story ...
I'm quite certain these images will replace the current bottle images being used on their web site http://www.drinkgt.com/
With all three bottles being used side-by-side on their web site, I knew the colors of the logos on the bottles needed to be right. The problem was that they did not print the same on the different flavor labels, and none of them matched the web site colors. I needed to adjust each label differently to get a match the web site. This ended up being difficult for me to do.

I decided to check out the site to see if there was something I could grab to use as a color reference. I got lucky, because the background image is the color fill used for the logos on the bottles. I was able to view just the background image and save it out. I then dropped it into the bottle edits. Using the COLOR blend mode I was able to nail the colors on all the label logos with nothing more than an additional exposure adjustment.

They did update their web site a while back ...
First shot is their old images (my previous bottle shots with new label design overlaid)
Second is the site using the new photos.

In hindsight I wish I had matched the green on their NoGMO and the "Sports Drink" text - nobody has complained yet.
