    Re: Post your images of Liquor

    So I'm shooting soft light through the bottle. That's the main reason I needed to do multiple exposures, with one of them being unlit except with light from my light pad passing through a gobo with...

    Post your images of Liquor

    Most of us probably have at least a few bottles kicking around, and after a little "inspiration" maybe we'll make a worthwhile image.
