Here it is a short description of the process for creating the image of the bottle “Papo Seco” to Pinto & Raposo.
For this shot I only had the 5 bottles my client gave me and the idea he wanted for the image… He wanted “fresh” “clean” and “young” he also needed some blank space for adding text later on…
In the beginning I was thinking on using only one bottle…but as I had 5 bottles available I decided to try to use them all.
