We love photographing wineries here at Meaux.Photography, from capturing beautiful tasting rooms to fabulous wines. Here is a behind the scenes look at one of our recent tasting room photo shoots at 868 Estate Vineyards. The winery is located in Purcellville and offers both outstanding wines and elegant dinning. Their on-site restaurant, Grandale, serves fresh, local gourmet food in a relaxed yet elegant setting.
When photographing big open spaces such as this one, we often use 6-8 studio lights/flashes to light the space. In this one photo above, we had a total of 8 lights, 4 studio lights and 4 flashes. We also wanted to highlight the beautiful wood wine racks and the local artwork on the back wall. Using our light painting process, we went through the tasting room, spot lighting all the details of the tasting room that we wanted to bring to life. Back at our studio, each photograph was put into a multi-layer composite, color corrected, and checked for verticals to create the beautiful shot above. Voila!
