I have been following Alex Koloskov on Google+ now for a while and have always wanted to try some of these shots. I have no idea how he makes it look so easy in the video's, so big hats off to him.
I really need to work on my backgrounds as well.
Shot with a Nikon D300s + 24mm-70mm 2.8. SB600 was the only flash I had, so used that below the table to fire against the reverse of my flat mates poster. 2 soft boxes either side. Liquids used were, Harvey's Bitter (from my local across the road) to try and replicate Brandy, and red food colouring + water to replicate wine.....ish.
Looking forward to getting my acrylic ice-cubes delivered so I can re-shoot the Brandy ones.
Any tips or hint's really would be helpful as i really enjoyed this, but want to get better.
