I have started on my stock photography using my Canon T2i/550D. Every time I take a picture I also want to create a video.
I think I nailed this photo of a wine glass last night (below), it took some time to figure out how to light and position it just right. Then this morning I wanted to create a video of me pouring red wine into it in slow motion. I don’t think I nail it like I did with the photo.
I use Lightroom for my photos and Sony Vegas for my videos, but I can’t seem to get the same look to my videos.
I couldn’t get the background to be pure white like I wanted. I tried many times to get the white balance just right and then using the contrast curves to blow out the highlights but Vegas will not let me blow them out without scarifying detail in the glass.
I know I can do better before I release this video clip into creative commons, does anyone have suggestions on how to get the background to be pure white?
