Forest Glow

I was honoured to be asked to take the photos of artist Alice Shirley’s magnificent painting for Forest Glow, who are a new company specialising in mulled wines. The photos were converted into labelling for the launch of their first bottles during 2015, which I can confirm is very tasty indeed!

Product photography like this is always interesting and challenging – it has to be done in a controlled manner and you have to ensure you capture the details that are faithful to the materials, in this case the oil painting on high quality fine art paper, but also ensure that the final reproduction has balanced lighting and is as neutral and faithful in tonality and colour as possible.
