One of my dear friends is a prop master for the studios...there are LOTS of ways to make glass/drinks/ice/ appealing....try this...next time, take the glass, and spray it with clear lacquer on the outside...wait till it dries.. make sure your background clear...so no plants, etc...and add ice, remove spoon, and get a little spray bottle of water, and spritz the outside of the glass to produce a sweating effect..(only on the front and sides), a fine mist...not on the back or it will magnify and bend the light in a way that is unappealing...you can create bubbles on the inside of the glass, by adding 7-up or club soda...if you ever have to shoot a dark liquid, for a class or something, and you want to shoot an amber beer, coke, etc, add that 7-up, and the light will shine thru the glass..
and the added effervescense reflects light, so it is a win-win..
Lots of fun to play with, but, all and all, I like the color in that glass, Khol...funny how even the simple things in life, are so beautiful..you captured that gorgeous color, and I like it!!
