Cocktail Ambasy - product photography
Cocktail Embassy is a luxurious cocktail bar, located in South East London, focused on serving the best cocktails in the best atmosphere with the best twist of orange. Their new website needed a new series of photos that would do justice to their unique drink menu. This is where our role came into play! Excited as we were, we had to sort out the problem of lightning. You’ve been to a bar, you know what we mean… But well, ain’t no mountains high enough 😉
In order to make the drinks as appealing and mouth-watering as possible we used bright lenses, which resulted in images with shallow depth of field. Not only did it add a ‘wow factor’ to photos, but it also made lack of light actually work in our favour. For some shoots, we also used a flash bouncing off of the ceiling, creating a beautiful (romantic if you will) glow.
But – to be honest with you – quality equipment was only half of success. The other half was our experience and great bartending job. Ok, so is it drink o’clock already? 😉 Cheers!
