i decided to try again at product type shot. [i think that's what its called]
what's causing the white glares on the bottom part of the old spice can?
maybe it's light bouncing off the paper?
Light bouncing off the paper is too strong.
Im assuming turning the umbrella at a lesser angle?
If you're lighting it up with a single umbrella, you might have to place a gobo to the right rear of the can, just outside of frame.
yea im using just a single umbrella on this one
Try again, this time take pictures somewhere other then on a computer desk
yea i just have said..that it was a spur of the moment thing.
whats the best way to prevent spill from the background?
i've found that i get the best results using constant light source rather than flashes.
this was from the first time i tried it. i know they aren't "perfect" but it was WAAAY easier to play with a light bulb than the flashes
Actually a little photoshop goes a long way.
photo i just took now, using overhead flash in softbox
desklamp lighting and a dusty videocard
ok i added a third picture...another stab at it. first time shooting under glass. didnt get as good of a reflection as i expected
The very first shot, the one of the statue. I would think, personally, that the DOF was too shallow. If you are trying to showcase the piece for sale, wouldn't you want to show as much detail as possible?
my 2 pennies.
yea thts true
too shallow DOF. looks good for 1 light.
"Hi-Key," is how most in the industry refer to this style of photograph.
oh ok..yea i wasnt sure what it was called. thanks for the heads up
