Photographing Vintage Beverage Glasses Using Milk Or White Styrofoam Pellets

Tips About Photographing Vintage Glassware Or Milk Bottles

When photographing vintage beverage glassware it helps to fill the glass with something white such as real milk or something that will looks like milk .

"Faux Milk"

For "faux milk" try filling up glassware or glass bottles with pellets of Styrofoam or even white tissue paper. Although the tissue paper will not give you a nice smooth look.

It is easy to find Styrofoam pellets sold online in a variety of pellet sizes. Although I have not tried this, I imagine you could crumble up Styrofoam packaging and make your own filler. Many sellers fill milk bottles with Styrofoam filler when they display these items in their shops.
