It only took twelve weeks, but there's finally a colour photo. At PWOContests, there was a challenge calling for the colour green, so I happily bought one of my favourite beers to be a prop in the photo. Wasn't sure if I should go bottle or cans, but I don't think it really mattered in the end in terms of the photo. For those wondering about the title of the blog post, three fire guys is what they wanted to call the beer originally, but investors didn't like the name so much. Instead every bottle and can is stamped with 3FG as a compromise.
This was lit with two speed lights. One is pointed at the case of beer and cans with a Honl 1/4" speed grid attached. The other is modified with a 24"x24" soft box with a grid pointed right at me about two feet away. This was one of the easier setups to pull off. I didn't want the scene too refined because it's a photo of a dude drinking beer. How much time would someone in that position really spend arranging a scene like this?
