Product photography of translucent bottles on white plexiglass photographed at Barnet Photography's Costa Mesa studio.
These three similar bottles are transparent, and there is lots or writing on the back. Our challenge was to capture the image in a way that the brand name in the front did not compete with the writing in the back making the name difficult to read. The back copy could have been blurred out in post, but this would have been time consuming and would not look as good as if a very shallow area of focus was used for the front to render the back out of focus, which is what we did. Another exposure with a wider area of focus was made for the tops of the bottles, and the two exposures were blended in post.
