Blue Frog 蓝蛙酒吧鸡尾酒拍摄


CLIENT: Blue Frog Bar & Grill

WHAT: Cocktail with surrounding drinks and bottles

WHEN:  August 2009

WHERE: Blue Frog Bar & Grill, Xujiahui venue

WHY: Blue Frog wanted photographs of their food and beverages for in-store, menu, and online advertisement

HOW: For this image, product placement was crucial. The color and shape of each bottle and drink was very important to create the right atmosphere for the product. Originally, there was a frosty white bottle in the background where the blue Sky vodka bottle is. The seemingly obvious decision to switch the bottle was made for the better mix of colors, overall feel of the photograph, as well as the color tying in nicely with the name of the restaurant. As an additional plus, we realized that SKYY Vodka is one of the main vodka suppliers to Blue Frog.

To highlight the cocktail, we used one light for the overhead as well as another to add an extra emphasis on the Blue Frog design. Various grids were used to light the surrounding bottles and scrim to bounce the exuding light back into frame.

FUN FACT This was Justin’s very first shoot with Scott and Limelight Studio, and ended up holding a large scrim overhead for the better part of two hours.
