Here I shoot a shot of whisky in an attempt at a project I like to call “The Shooting the Shot, Shot…”
(Straight Out Of Camera)
Nikon 105mm F/2.8
3 Flashes at 1/128th
- Lowered exposure, highlights and blacks
- Raised Contrast, shadows and whites
- Raised clarity and vibrance
Brought into Photoshop and expanded the canvas
Cleaned up the background, then added in a shard
from another photo
Chose the vignette area I wanted
Blurred the vignette
Set the opacity lower on the vignette
I am quite saddened when I think that most of the time everyone sees these kinds of shots on a tiny phone screen.
There is so much detail that you miss on that.
