A Simple Glass of Water
An exercise in keeping things very simple.
Large aperture (f/1.8) to limit depth of field.
Simple background - the squares on the right are part of a tray which was propped up against the wall and not part of the post processing.
Focus is on the two drips on the side of the glass.
Contrast and vignette added to unify the image.
This was shot on a kitchen work top with three overhead naked light bulbs (hardly ideal). A small depth of field combined with increasing contrast can overcome just about any lighting conditions however unhelpful.
This was also shot at a high ISO, 3200 which meant that I didn’t have to use a tripodd or any other support.
In other words, shots like this do not actually require a studio or any specialized equipment.
This was shot with a DSLR but a very similar end result could be achieved using a point and shoot and a good tiltshift (selective focus) software filter such as the one that comes with Snapseed.
