Spitfire Gold for the Kent brewer Shepherd Neame.
There’s been a distinctive warm glow around the Canterbury studio at Lakesview whilst shooting Spitfire Gold for the Kent brewer Shepherd Neame.
This year has seen the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and 25 years since Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale was first brewed to commemorate The Few. Brewed by Britain’s oldest brewer in Faversham, Kent, Spitfire Gold is a new, permanent addition to the Shepherd Neame portfolio and a sweeter extension to the Spitfire brand. It’s also making the most of the current trend for golden ales.
Spitfire Gold is described as well-balanced, light golden ale. To keep a good colour in the beer and strong highlights in the bottle glass (to preserve the curves and the overall shape) requires a three light setup in the studio – backlight, main light and a fill light. Separate treatment is given to the label because it reflects light quite differently to the glass.
Shooting glass and shiny things can be tricky, so if you’ve a product that needs some fresh studio or location photography, why not get in touch?
