Being a photographer means working with light and there are a lot of ways to add to or change the lighting in a given situation to achieve a shot you want to create. In this series of photos I show how the same composition looks with three different lighting options.
Today, we had the assignment of photographing 6 different bottles of alcohol to create compelling images to use in social media for 41st Avenue Liquor. It occurred to me that this could be a great exercise for photographers who want to sharpen their creativity, to tune up their chops, and to push their sense of design and composition. It’s a productive constraint: 6 objects, 1 block, using your phone. If you really want to, you can make great photographs anywhere. You could go get a six pack of different beers to try this exercise on your own.
