I created this picture for a client of mine. He wanted to show the charme of his ties. I started to think to something that could deal with the concept of elegance, good taste, satisfaction… Finally I found my inspiration thinking at a good glass of red wine. You know, in Italy we are proud of our wines… I took the picture using two gridded strobes The 1st one was directly above the glass, in order to illuminate the tie and to create a well defined circle of light on the table. The 2nd one had also a red gelatin and was directed toward the black background. I used also two white panels to fill in the shadows and to model the shape of the glass with their reflection and the help of two black panels.
