This week Im shooting shiny products, the most challenging product I ever photographed. I successfully eliminated the unwanted reflections and I also created some wanted shadows to put more life to the product. You really need to understand how the light bounces back (angle of incidence) to perfect this shot.
Today I shot the second batch of my current project for a metal company. I started yesterday with those huge-heavy pipes and flanges. Its really challenging, it took me 2 hours to establish the light that i think will make these simple things interesting.
Heres one beauty shot of the 2nd batch.
4 lights system with white board as fill, amber gel fitted on one strobe.
Canon EOS 5D with EF 100mm f2.8 Macro
