As a beverage photographer the scene doesn’t get much more perfect than this, shooting at Sydney’s Coogee beach 40°C day with sun bronzed talent and a esky of ice cold Coca-Cola.
Although there was no inspiration needed with the perfect scene set the day started a little rocky as on the way from the car on arrival I was victim to a low flying pelican who decided to drop a little present off drenching my leg but I will leave the bad news there as from that moment on everything ran smoothly… Isn’t there something about good luck and having a bird poo on you haha.
The shoot involved my drink stylist, hair and makeup and talent and we were to create various on premises style scenes showcasing the famous Coca-Cola glass bottle. We utilised the sun through various scrims to light the bottle and then filled the rest of the scene with a mix of reflectors, flash and HMI lighting. Graduation and ND filtration was additional used on camera to help create the emotive Coca-Cola look. The images were captured on the Canon 5Ds.
Below are some of the BTS setups and one of the images. Please check out http://www.bencole.com.au/gallery/beverage-photography-sydney/ for more exciting beverage work
