I received this beautiful bottle as a gift from some Russian colleagues, so I thought it would be nice to take a photo of it. For the setup I used three lights. One on each side, that you can see reflected on the bottle and another one below the bottle and pointing partly to the backdrop. In order to make the water splash I just threw water to the bottle with a small cup several times, and later combined all photos with photoshop. If you want to get sharp details from the water and frozen it, remember it is important to use small power on the flashes, otherwise you will get blur water drops. The higher the flash output, the longer the time the light is on, and this means blur images... So you have to find the right combination between ISO, aperture and small flash output.
Thank you all for your votes and nice comments.

This could go right in the ad page. My choice for the blue. I hope you tell us how you got the water spray.
