Week 8 Common objects

I had so many different subjects I could have chosen for this challenge, but in the end, I decided to pick something to fit with the extra credit. I particularly liked that this image had a limited colour pallet which is something I have wanted to try in the past, but had never quite got around to doing.
The lighting was very simple for this image, I had an LED behind the bottle to give the liquid a glow, and bounced another LED off the white ceiling above to limit the shadows, I had tried using a flash, but never quite got the look I wanted.
I used a narrow aperture to achieve sharpness through as much of the scene as possible f/18 and that resulted in a very slow 6 second shutter speed.
