It may sound easy and it may look easy, but shooting reflective sphere-shaped objects is a complicated task! Shooting objects like this, or even jewellery, where you want to retain that metallic feeling while avoiding unsightly reflections, can often be a real challenge.
Often a go-to solution is to use a light tent, or light box, but in this class Karl explains why these aren’t really the best option. Instead, he demonstrates a simply DIY lighting equipment solution that you can make yourself and that works better!
Throughout this class, you’ll see Karl’s step-by-step workflow and how he builds up his lighting to maintain that lovely metallic look on the subject while controlling and removing unwanted reflections in the metalwork.
- How to photograph reflective objects
- Demonstrate techniques for controlling reflections on shiny objects
- Lighting setups for product photography on a white background
