Beer/Cider Photo of the Week: Bottles and Caps at Cantillion


Bottles offer an interesting challenges to the photographer. The glass is very reflective of light. Too much flash applied at the wrong angle will flare off the glass and be a distraction. You can also catch your own reflection in the glass if you’re not careful

This is by no stretch of the imagination a unique photograph as it seems everyone who visits Cantillon is fascinated by the stacks upon stacks of bottles aging prior to labeling and release. The symmetry of round shapes of the bottom and the caps all lined up while the grooves along the bottom edge of the bottle and the punts (the round kick-up or dimple in the bottom) allow for the interesting play of light and shadow. The white figures on the bottle caps and the green tint of the bottles provide additional interest and contrast.
