Shirah Wine Shoot: Insights into Professional Retouching
I was recently asked to shoot some of Shirah Wine’s new products for their web site. Gabriel and Shimon Weiss, owners of Shirah Wine, were wonderful to work with and the shoot was really a lot of fun (and their specialty vintages were so delicious)!
As you can see below, the post-production of the shoot required quite a bit of retouching. The pictures below show a couple of images that I combined in Photoshop to produce the final image for each bottle.
While keeping my camera completely still on my Bogen tripod, I first shot an image with good detail in the bottle itself, than I exposed for good detailed in the label and the cork. I also took additional exposures for the background, and I also retouched out the various other reflections in the bottles. Finally, I combined all the images and smoothed it all out to look photo-realistic. What do you think?
If you want to order either of these great wines, please click on the images below, and it will take you to the corresponding Shira Wine product page. And if you need your products shot, make sure to give me a call!
