The late Gary Perweiler I draw a lot of inspiration from. Interpreting some of his images I very much enjoy, as in this shot of the humble Manhattan:
Like myself, an oldie but a goodie ;).
The lighting was very simple. What drew me to his composition was the repetition of the circular shapes – including the water droplets – and the variations in the color of the liquid. I also love my martini glass and wanted to do an image with it.
