Wine bottle photography is one of the hardest images to reproduce well. It was one of the first things I learned to do back in the 1970’s at college in the UK. We had to use a 5×4 camera and we only had continuous lights, no flash. It took many hours to get a good image even with juts black and white film as we took a photo and then processed the film and made a test print before we could see what the image looked like. Corrections were made and then another exposure was taken.  It’s much easier nowadays with digital photography.  It’s important to get nice soft highlights and remove those unsightly reflections. Best to work in a blacked out studio and be very careful where you place those lights. Remember the angle of incidence = the angle of reflection.
