Casillero del Diablo

Casillero del Diablo or the 'cellar of the devil' as the translation reads is a superb wine brand from the producer Concha y Toro of Chile.  An old tale once said that the devil himself lived down in the cellars where the wine was stored.  This was of course a story to keep the thieves away.

This image was taken using a three strobe light setup.  As follows:-

Strobe 1:-

The Key light was positioned camera right with a 100 x 30 Broncolor strip soft box.  The soft box was positioned behind a sheet of 90gsm tracing paper.  The tracing paper was placed in between the subject and the soft box in order diffuse the light further and create the lovely soft highlight which runs down the right side of the bottle.

Strobe 2:-

This was positioned facing the bottle with a snoot attached.  The snoot provided a narrow beam of light to illuminate the label on the bottle.

Strobe 3:-

The light was placed under the table and facing the background to create the a narrow beam of light behind the subjects. 

Finally, I used a 1m lastolite reflector on silver to bounce light back onto the glass and bottle.  The reflector provided the highlights on the top of the glass and the highlight running down the left of the bottle.
