Hasselblad + Beer = Good stuff.
In this behind the scenes video, commercial photographer Rob Grimm and Phlearn, co-created a tutorial around the set of a beer photo shoot. Grimm does a great job explaining the lighting being used on set, how he works around reflections on glass with polarizers, how he creates highlights in the beer bottle and why chopsticks are necessary to make cereal malt beverages look crisp on camera.
Grimm has shot with many beverage clients including Bacardi, Bass Ale, Beck’s, Budweiser, Dewar’s, Grey Goose, Jack Daniel’s, Michelob, Skyy Vodka, Southern Comfort and Wild Turkey so it is safe to say that this guy knows what he is doing. Below you can see the lighting set up of how the shoot went down.
