Re: Cutting out glass on a white background?

Made a serious attempt. I use a bit brighter background than last time to help it along.

I found the white>transparent action useful for the dark reflections in the glass, and the liquid/reflection.
For all the bright/white reflections (mainly the bottleneck) I manually masked it. There's not much information about those reflections in the photo as it is all clipped.

Re: Cutting out glass on a white background?

I agree that the Yellow liquid in the bottle would change color due to chosen color background. Also, Most studio shots of bottles with liquid will have numerous catchlights and some darker shadow edges. Best thing to do would be to shoot on a light neutral background which will allow you to isolate and enhance any catchlights or shadow modeling that will occur. I once shot a whole series of products and got the lighting and positioning just right - even before I had the stylists begin putting in liquid and food. I just kept duplicating the original shot and added the different product and "even" labels (as smart objects later).
