Critique Wine: Fun Fotos -- Help, please, with more photo concepts

Discussion in 'Miscellany' started by Mike Buckley, May 11, 2018.

  1. I made all of these photos during the previous five years but have not made any since last year using the same themes of incongruity and comedy. That's because I've not thought of any new concepts. Any and all help with new ideas is greatly appreciated even if their theme doesn't exactly fit the theme of these photos.

    Grapes in the glass? Red, white or mixed...
    With good lighting it should look good.

    Great pictures by the way, even the Alcaselzers are blasphemy...

  4. Thank you to Nick and Klaus!

    Klaus: I tried to stuff grapes in a transparent bottle but couldn't make it happen without ruining the grapes. I can't believe I never thought of putting them instead in a glass. Thanks for the idea!

  5. I added a seventh photo to the first post I had forgotten about because I have it cataloged a little bit differently.

    alternative fruits, nonalcoholic wines, crushing the fruit, Liebfraumilch
    ????
     
  7. Thanks, Bob! If you think of anything more specific, please let me know. There are so many fruit wines that I can't think of a way to make a joke about them. As for crushing the fruit, nobody wants to see my feet. :eek: Liebfraumilch is a standard, regulated wine, so I also can't think of anything specific off the top of my head of how to use it in a photo.

  8. Mother's Milk :rolleyes:
     
  9. Lieb means love. Love Mrs. Milk. Perhaps milk being poured into a wine glass?
     
  10. Sure, cow milk, soy milk almond milk . . .

    And while there, why not grapenuts in a glass.
     
  11. Yowza! I begin every day even when I'm traveling with grape nuts for breakfast. I like that idea: grapenuts in a glass with a spoon in it!
     
  12. Corkscrew in a grapenuts box?

    How about crushing the fruit with your garlic press;)
     
  14. You lost me. Very easy to do.

    I can imagine that. Also using a citrus juicer. I'll definitely give it some thought.
     
  15. Although I already have seen some of those images before it is very nice and fun to watch them again Mike.

    Oh, I forgot...
    If you need asisstance to open a bottle, ask Desmond :sneaky:

    Enough said

  18. Thanks, Binnur!

    I use fake materials sometimes, but that really was paint.

    An overhead shot of a spilled wine glass with a cork sitting in the spilled red wine, perhaps illuminated from below a touch.....hmmm, getting thirsty....
     
  20. I like that idea, Wade. I made a somewhat related image four years ago that I display at All Things Wine | Spilled Pale Sherry . Your idea is sufficiently different, so I'll probably go for it. Thank you!
