Sometimes you just gotta end the week with a simple, heavenly, shot....or five, but who's counting.
Those that follow my work regularly know that I tend to go for the dark, moody, dramatic images. I love the contrast of an all black backdrop with a punch of light on the subject; turning an ordinary product you might regularly walk by in the store, into something a little mysterious and sexy. But this time I felt that I might be able to flip things around and go for a bright, high key look and still make it a bit sexy.
I couldn't help but try to slip in a tiny subtle touch of drama. Playing off the bright flare on the rim of the shot glass, the shadow running along the right side, with the deeper tones in the whiskey helps create that sense of tension...or at least in my head it does. What's important is what does it do for you?
