Default Beer

Hit rock bottom with no models and therefore tried my hand at product photography of which I know nothing about. But I like and endorse the product!!

Any C&C appreciated.

I've never done product photos either so I don't know the solution but it looks warm to me. maybe with frost on the glass?

Sometimes subject trumps technique, eh Fran?

For me this is the case here although you've done a nice job with the photography on it too.

OK, I'll frost one right up and then take another shot! Of course, I can't let it go to waste, so it's ok with me.

Some beers are apparently meant to be served warm one of the reasons for coming to NZ I guess! Even the brown stuff is cold

Nice shot. I'd warn against too much practice; after all, what would you do with them

I think it's missing the "sweat" to look really cool. Not warm enough or humid enough hear in NE USA at this time of year. But something to think about.

Andy, if it's all the same with you, I'll keep practicing. I'm sure I can find something to do with the left over "product"

Good on ya Fran!! If you need a hand with it, I'm sure with a bit of time we could muster up a volunteer or two to help

LOL!

It's really a nice shot, Fran. I wonder who in the heck would frequent a tavern called "Patterson's", though...sounds kind of seedy...
