Tip#1 Be inventive, be different.

I was going through some of my shots and came upon these I did for a restaurant last year. Didn’t want just another generic drink shot so used my phone’s led to internally light the liquid instead of hitting it with a flash.
This can be done with any transparent material.

The only downside is getting the phone in shot - next time I’ll punch a hole in some card and hide the phone.

Note: 2nd pic is underexposed - I used this one to show the phone.

Good on you mizu!

Was meant to be more of an info thread - not me spamming, in which case I’ve been approved to spam these forums with my wares anyway.

Its a cool technique. Ive used it before, and we actually use this with a waterbottle as a make do lantern while camping where we cant have fires haha.

Today this idea popped into my head out of the blue which involved this technique. I used my Crystal Head vodka bottle filled with water, dropped red food dye into it and it gave some sick results

I actually designed an entire bar shelving system around this technique.
It’s not working ideally (because the bar owner and builders keep having input) but I’ll attempt to get a photo of it tonight.
