The set for this shot was built in the studio and was lit for a dark and moody visual aesthetic. I then captured plate shots for the liquid and the captures were composited in post by our Retouchers. I really enjoy creating images that are dark and moody while the product or focal point is properly exposed.
This was shot on a PhaseOne XF IQ160 DB with the SK 120mm f4
Camera Settings: f5.6 at 1/125 sec, ISO 50
