The ice and some white elements seem over exposed... perhaps a bit of PP/ Burning/ Black level increase might get some definition in? Otherwise a nice shot.

here is my attempt at an advertising product shot... constructive criticism is welcomed but keep in mind that I'm just starting out with studio photography, this is my second attempt at a product shot


Heineken Beer 2 by CastilloPhotoDesign, on Flickr

The ice is a bit cheesy. . . Instead, try crushing some ice into a thick powder consistency and dip the bottle in it. . . get some on your hands and press it against the bottle. . . then create a drip and puddle scene at the base of the bottle (don't do this in warm room ;) ). And for pete's sake take off that little bit of ice on the bottle cap.

This is just for starters. . . ;)

I am going to re do the shot today, do you like the red color background or should i try other colors? i was thinking of trying the amber gel

I like the red. I think it compliments the beer color, but thats just my humble opinion.

I agree with most things that were said especially opening the bottle, the ice, and (oh dear) the lime.

One other very small thing you may wish to consider is a bottle of Heineken is normally 330ml from memory (I know that they always seem to empty far too quickly when I drink them) and that glass looks like a pint glass which would make it 500ml.

Heineken, probably the best... nah it's not, but is a great try. ;-)
