This bottle caught my eye in the liquor store so I decided to take it home and shoot it

You really crushed this. Awesome shot! May I ask how you lit the label? I often stuggle with that...

Thanks Thadd. The majority of the light on the label is coming from the two scrims on either side of the bottle. Once I had that setup where I liked it, I then added another monolight through a snoot about 45 degrees to camera left. I then combined the photos in post to add some much needed highlights to the center of the label. Does that make sense?
