Acrylic Rods Hair Product Shoot

In this product photography class, Karl and the team pull out all the stops to execute his clever concept: glossy acrylic rods representing strands of hair that have been ‘fixed’ by the Matrix product.

As Karl, Ash and Georgie work together to style, compose and light the shot, you’ll see an amazing display of creative problem-solving, lighting expertise and teamwork.

A top priority is achieving a perfectly uniform pure white background. Discover which lights and props Karl uses to do just that.

You’ll also cover the lights and modifiers you need to create gradient lighting on a glossy product like this one, as well as how to capture the various shots you need in preparation for bringing them together in post-production.

The final result is a stunning and unusual product photo, well worth all the problem-solving and perseverance!
