I'm really sorry I'm wasting you time  with this question but I had today some disscutions with a teacher about the name of a shot size. If I have a bottle or a can (not a human being) that fills the whole frame, how is this called? Closeup or Full Shot? 

Thanks!Cana.jpg

The scene's context would help, going off of your drawing that'd come off as a close-up to me.

The standard shot sizes usually refer to the human figure, depending on circumstances this could be a close up on beer glass or insert on beer glass. Full shot refers to the full human (not a term I use, I'm more a long shot person), so it would be it'll be a wider view with the beer glass as a small part of the shot. given the human figure is the reference scale  .
