I had just had breakfast and there I was staring into the emptiness wondering what to shoot today. I hadn't taken any pictures in a while, worse did some real photography. So I decided to do another product shoot again. The idea of an energy drink, a mug, and a saucer popped into my head. I bought the items and headed home. I'm not a big fan of energy drinks though. I think they don't give you energy per se, they just shut out the part of your brown that tells you you're tired. They have an adverse effect in the end, but I did enjoy this one for sure. A lot of Nigerians like me would love a bottle of Predator Energy Drink.

ITEMS USED

BACKGROUND COLOR

  • Black

Process

The process was pretty simple. At first, I had a challenge with the height of the bottle, as it touched the top of the box, so I decided to shoot from the neck down. A very easy way to shoot any beverage food or anything similar is to spray with water. It's a perfect start to make it look cool. What I did differently as an experiment that came out nicely what the light mode. The liquid in the bottle had a greenish-brown sort of color (forgive me, I'm terrible with colors). I realize changing the light from cool to warm lighting would add a nice depth to it and it did. It maid the liquid glow. Another thing I did as an experiment also was to shoot in manual and make sure the photo was a tad underexposed. Worked out nicely in my opinion. I also sprayed a lot of water underneath the bottle to make it look shiny under the light.

I'm absolutely delighted with the outcome.

What do you think?

Mahn, I am learning some things here..
At first, I was about to ask how you edited these pictures to look as cool as it is. But it seems they were all as a result of the experiments you mentioned. And by underexposed, what do you mean pls?

I realize changing the light from cool to warm lighting would add a nice depth to it and it did.

Which light did you change here?

Overall, I love your work of art if it can be called so. Honestly, if you don't know, lowkey na you be my mentor..😁🙌🙇

This guy day whine me 😅.

So underexposed means making it dark intentionally.

Exposure is brightness in photography, so touching up some settings can automatically make your photos dark even in broad daylight.

Then the changing of light mood is because I have a mini photo studio (the link is up) that has the option to do so.

Finally, I no think way I don reach to be mentor oh 🤣🤣🤣

Thank you so much bro.

Your comment are always well appreciated ❤️

Honestly, I am not! Who am I to do so...?
Oh, I have the idea now. I think it'd be one of the 3 basics settings - ISO,exposure and one other one- that will do the job..

Finally, I no think way I don reach to be mentor oh 🤣🤣🤣

Do not underestimate yourself brother😁

Thank you bro 🙏😊

Yeah, exposure triangle.

Aperture, shutter speed, ISO.

That's basically what digital photography is all about.

Hah! Know that feeling... I used to drink energy drinks when working as delivery cyclist. When the effect goes away it hits one hard, just like coffee.

I loved the project. The coolest part of product photos is having those sudden ideas, like we feel motivated out of nowhere

You see @dreemsteem????
He gets it, Stephen. He gets itttt!
That particular photo looks so alluring, so inviting!

Getting that spray bottle made me realize you'd taken deep thought in planning exactly what you wanted.

Now I'm hungry to shoot fizzy drink commercials 🤣

Fun fact, we have the same one here, but it's called ultra, and it only comes in cans, not in bottles.
