From mirrors to silk gloves and acrylic rods, these bits of equipment can help with fixing items in position, controlling light, and making your studio space safer to work in.


  1. Hi Karl,

    For acrylic mirror , do I need a specific size for product photography or food photography ?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Louna, no not really it’s good to have a few small ones and some big ones I have them from about the size of my hand to about 50cm x 30cm. For very small ones you can just use silver card and also makeup mirrors.

  2. Do you have the exact thickness and transparency info on the white acrylic plastic? I’m trying to buy a few 4’x4′ sheets of it, but it does come in a few thickness from 0.060″ to 0.250″
