I could drink this all day. Delicious. Refreshing.

Dogfish Head Red & White is a big, Belgian-style witbier brewed with coriander and orange peel and fermented with pinot noir juice. After fermentation, a fraction of the batch is aged in one of our 10,000-gallon oak tanks.

This is my first time using the suspended or floating object technique. I spent about 30 minutes online researching how to do it in Photoshop. Most of the information I found online was too difficult to understand. Photographer Evan Sharboneau of [Photo Extremist] created this easy to follow YouTube video that explained it all.

I spent another 30 minutes testing out my technique using an empty beer bottle before attempting to photograph my main subject. I think the results are good for my first try. With practice I think I’ll get better at the floating object technique.
