    Drinks are often better if shot backlit or lit from underneath. Having your light on axis of the lens causes ugly glare/flare/reflections. In addition, make sure the surface is level as well. It's better to use room temp liquids rather than cold ones and just add condensation afterwards than deal with natural condensation.

    Clean your glass as well, I can see thumb-prints, smudges, splatters all over.

    Also, use the appropriate glass for the drink... beer in a sparkling wine glass doesn't go...

    Thanks sir david. i will reshoot again this weekend so im looking for more ideas.. hopefully i can get it right.

    your comment helps alot. just a question how can i add condensation?

    i think the flare came from my pop up flash. im using nissin di622 and placed it on the side of the glass that's why i have to use my pop up flash that causes flare in front of the glass wine..

    also i think i should research more on what particular drinks will suit for a particular glass.


    thanks again sir david..

    Just 'flag' the pop-up flash with some foil or something, it'll bounce the pop-up's light to the Nissin but not reflect off the surface, experiment with different flag size and angles.

    Condensation, just use a small atomizer spray bottle to spray water on. Better if you use 50/50 glycerin+water or clear syrup so it won't run.
