Want to shoot bottles like a pro? This condensed edit of one of our most popular live photoshoots gives you a 10-minute masterclass in product photography.
To stage the shot, Karl creates a luxurious-looking surface using a coffee table top and a piece of slatted wood. Simple, affordable and effective!
Likewise, the background is merely a piece of hardboard, painted by hand and positioned using stands and clamps.
For maximum three-dimensionality, Karl positions his camera lightly off to the side of the bottle. Then it’s time to start lighting the shot.
