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.
Several of those other photos were printed and are now decorating the walls of Sanford's beautiful tasting room. That panorama I'm holding is five feet wide by twenty-two inches.
