Import Greenbottle

A pile of new two dimensional surfaces are now at my disposal. Paper backdrops of all colors (well, construction paper at least), and plentiful new foam core in black and white. However my miniature desk is still the place where the magic happens… a trip to Home Depot this weekend may finally equip me with something substantial and thoroughly in an industrial/commercial-grade aesthetic.

I realize only now that this glaringly red color is the backdrop to this entirely Chinese beer. A natural choice though – brown or light blue just wouldn’t have done this bottle justice, though I suppose a nice yellow may have complemented the stripes.

Whatever the case, I was mostly replicating much of yesterday’s techniques onto this different bottle. Testing the similarities between the two. But really just struggling to conceive of a different way to light it.

I met a kid from Tsingtao whilst I lived in Shanghai.
