Here is another experiment in capturing light passing through liquids and being how the iPhone’s camera reacts.
This is light reflecting through a cocktail that is a deep maroon brown. It contains a mix of rye whisky, orange bitters and Tia Maria. The swirls are deep and rich hues of brown, red and orange.
At a slightly different angle the light shifts and the fluid of the cocktail becomes more golden and an angry sky forms in the reflection above the swirls. The feedback caused by the increased exposure adds texture.
This cocktail was made with gin and St. Germain. The clear liquid captures and reflects the surrounding environment, introducing all sorts of colors for the iPhone camera to pick up.
The classic Sidecar cocktail is a tawny amber color. The iPhone camera accents that and the glow of the light reflected from a window through the glass.
