I found the bottle in my collection. Glasses and bottles always fascinate me; I thought it might be a good idea to set up a shot with them.
I wanted to emphasize the clarity of the glass, so I shot it back lit. Light source from window. Background was achieved using a large plastic bag covering the window to get a real nice diffused light. A polarizing filter was used to reduce the reflection and glare on the glass. 80A in turn give the image the cold and bluish feeling.
