Bottle Prep is Very Important

simply put, the better the bottle, the better the photograph


Bottle Preparation

1 - Glass Seams- Take a close look you will find them. This is the most important part of choosing a great bottle. The glass seams needs to be on the side, away from the key light and not running under the label.

2 - Labels - should be straight & clean. If it is not straight I will automatically fix it during retouching for about $10. 

3 - Foils, Caps- check for damage, dents, seam location and logo position. Wax Enclosures - check for good character, color and position.

4 - Locator Dent -a few bottles have these mostly on spirits and magnums, try to find a bottle with it on the back side. 

5 - Tissue Wrap - Tissue wrapping the bottles helps protect the labels from vibration marking and foils during transportation.

Fixing Issues "There are a lot of issues I can fix for a very reasonable price. Digitally or Photographically, I am capable of straightening a crooked label, rotating a foil or cork so the logo is aligned with the front,  adding a missing foil or wax, removing typography, art or upc's, raise, remove or adjusting the air gap and I can equalizing your liquid level's. I'm happy to apply a new label to a shiner, process with white or black backgrounds and shoot the back labels.

If you have a problem I am happy to solve it - "No Problem" - David Mellish


note: bottles left for more than 60 days may be go through my rigorous quality control or via testing with friends or in some way consumed ... but for sure they will be enjoyed .... thank you!
