Recently I did a shoot for Falcon Brewing of their award-winning Salem Rd Stout. The Pickle Barrel in Pickering is going to feature it with a table talker (one of those stand up advertisements on the table).
So I’ve shot plenty of beer cans and beer bottles, shiny ones, ones with condensation (yes, I even used real water – I’m hard core) but this was my first at shooting actual beer with foam. That meant the condensation has to be a little mre long lasting.
Turns out it was trickier than I thought. You want the foam for the lighting, but by the time I was ready to shoot, the foam shrunk. So stir it, they say, it will foam up, they say.
Wow, did it ever! All over the glass and table. Back to cleaning the glass, dumping some of it out so I can fill it up with more that is still willing to foam up for me.
Then the trick of getting it at the perfect amount of foam – not so much you can’t see the logo, but enough that it looks like a proper stout. Don’t pour too much in it will overflow. Tricky, tricky, tricky. It looks good though – perfect for the cooler season.
