Photography Tutorials From The Best In The Business

Beer Photography & Retouching with Rob Grimm

Beer photography is a speciality requiring extensive knowledge of lighting, glass, and liquids. Yet that knowledge alone will not yield striking images without emotion as the driving force. Emotion in beverage photography? Absolutely. Rob Grimm has spent his career immersed in the world of beverage photography and he will show you his methods, tricks and workflow for creating the images that have made him an industry leader.  

In this tutorial, you will see Rob’s entire process for creating beverage images by breaking the composition down into its parts and obsessing over the details. You will learn the foundations of beverage photography from capturing a bottle on white, photographing cocktails including drink styling, proper use of ice, realistic condensation, creating appetite and appeal, and the use of duratrans to make an image that appears to be shot on-location with all the control of a studio. Rob will share with you his method for generating portfolio ideas that will make you rethink your entire approach to creating images. Finally, world-renowned retoucher Earth Oliver, will walk you through the best methods to bring polish to your images that stand out from the crowd.
