Photography is a two dimensional medium. No surprise there. So how do you make something look three dimensional? When photographing a beverage bottle or anything with contours and shape, how to show it? That’s where you’re lighting comes in. How you light the bottle will show its shape. A bottle has a continuous curve. You want to show that. A light that gradually drops off as it goes around the bottle will do more to show the shape than a thin line of light straight down the side. If you want your beverage photography to really appear to have dimension, consider a softer light that wraps more around the bottle rather than a thin line of light down the sides.
