To convey the concept of
barrel tasting (tasting wines drawn from the barrel into
your glass) to advertise a barrel tasting event, I created the photo at the left, below:
I combined the two photos at
the right to get the image I wanted.
This Photoshop masking method is explained in one of my tutorials.
I had a 19"x28" framed enlargement of this barrel tasting image made to hang next to the three-bottle photo (previous page). A copy of this enlargement now hangs in the Tangley Oaks Mansion, headquarters of Terlato Wines International in Lake Bluff, Illinois.
I combined twelve vertical
photos to create this 16"x60" vineyard
panorama. It depicts the first crop of the Terlato Family Vineyards estate vineyard just above Rutherford Hill Winery. A copy of this panorama hangs in Tangley Oaks as well.
I was flown to Sanford Winery and Vineyards near Santa Barbara, CA in a chartered plane specifically to photograph the historic Sanford and Benedict vineyard for Wine Enthusiast magazine. During the four hours I was there, I took quite a few other photos.
Six of those other photos have been enlarged and are now decorating the walls of Sanford's beautiful new tasting room. That 60x22" panorama is over their fireplace.
