Koronet Spotlight by Alexey Adamitsky

Art director Alexey Adamitsky and photographer Alexander Kaldov make it their personal goal to create better imagery for local and global advertising needs. They feel very passionate about still life images and thought there was a gap in quality images for beer products in their local market. They decided to go with local premium beer brand Lidskoe Koronet as the subject in their shoot. The bottle has really nice label and unique packaging design. They saw an opportunity to showcase it in best possible light. Read on and see how the project went. Enjoy!

The execution didn’t take long. The most important part was the planning stage. I worked on the concept and Alexander made sure the photography part was covered. The project wasn’t very complicated. Yet it supposed to be a composite of several shots for each final image so I planned accordingly. I made sure technically it was done right and thought of the overall flow of the shoot. I thought of the stages the bottle needs to be shot.

Working with my favorite tool, Capture One really made the difference. I could organize the capturing proceeds in a way the naming was clear and logical. When the technical and lighting parts were covered it took them 2 days of shooting. Half of the first day they mostly tested lighting setup to make sure they have best solution. The post-production also took two days.

Basically, I did a thorough research on the trends in beverages genre of photography. I decided on two different looks. The first was a shot no simple white background to show the beer bottle design in its best light and another in a group of thee bottle on black background to with intention to create emotional link to the image.
