Motion photography is something I love, whilst shooting pictures of pouring cocktails is one of favorite types of shots to take. The visual appearance, motion and life it creates in the pictures are amazing.
Prior to your pour shot, decide if you want the liquid partly poured in the picture or if you want the very first drop captured. Of course, you can also capture both. I start taking pictures when the liquid is halfway in the glass and continue to capture until the last drop.
Taking pictures while pouring cocktails “Pour shots” takes practice, but everything does. They can also be a bit frustrating when they don’t go well, and you can’t go back and pour the cocktail again. If you’re new to pour shots, try practicing pouring water, coffee or juice into a glass again and again, until you have the skills you desire.
