    Thank you, Christina. My first attempt at a backdrop paper.

    In my young days a taste of a cheap supermarket whisky put me off the stuff for decades. Only travelling in the UK changed my mind/taste. Just like Cognac, it is a lovely finish to a meal.

    Hi Frank!

    Are you picking up some reflections of the room in your bottles or am I just seeing things (again!)?

    Hi Terry, there surely are some reflections of the room. There's a wardrobe that had thrown some tint on the backdrop and which is only partly hidden by a white cloth. I also held up a black cloth behind the camera to reduce some refelections. - All in all not quite successful.
    Is there a tried and tested method to do better? In my experience polarization filters work only for a flat reflective surface.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Frank,
    Well, a couple of things come to mind. If you are lighting your scene, shoot it in a dark room. Otherwise, my suggestion would be to surround the scene with a black curtain (cloth or big black foam board pieces). You might also have to use a black card over the top as well. If your lighting extends far enough to light up the objects in your room, you’ll have to go with the black surrounding theory otherwise you’ll pick up the reflection in the bottle.
