Product photography can be a lot of fun. For many photographers right now, it’s the only type of photography they can really try. They often don’t need a lot of space, and you don’t really need a lot of gear to shoot them, either. For small things, you can usually get away with just a camera and lens and one light – and a bit of work in Photoshop compositing things together.
That’s what Peter Lindgren does in this video, with the assistance of fellow photographer, Jonas Häll. They use very minimal gear to get a very impressive final result. Their camera Sony’s new ZV-1 compact vlogging camera to shoot the images and only a single light source is used. It offers some great tips for making your beer look ice cold, including some you might not have seen before.

So you have just picked up your first light or you have had one light for a while now and you are wondering what more you can create with just that one light, well you can create LOADS. I see many post/comments saying they can’t do that as they only have one light and while it is more efficient using more lights in certain situations it really is quite amazing what you can create with just one, so my best advice is to get out and shoot loads, experiment and fail as many times as you can, because honestly you will learn more this way and the experience gained will stay with you, In this post I will show you just a few ways I have created images with one light, now this is no tutorial more a post on ideas to try .

Drones give us a different perspective for shooting photos and video. But, they are also useful for adding light from totally new angles and for lighting inaccessible areas. In his latest short film The Place Where, filmmaker Tim Sessler mounted a 1,600W LED light onto a drone and created a moody masterpiece.
Hey guys I have been really looking forward to sharing this post and the video which goes into it in more detail (link below), for all of the new photographers new to lighting and to all who think they are limited by their lack of gear! Well in this blog and video I will show you how you can create this image with just ONE LIGHT and all captured in camera and no editing ( that’s optional really as I would always finish my images with a quick tidy up if needed) but for this post below is the raw image straight from the camera.
Having only one light available doesn’t seem like it will give you many options for shooting. But in this video, Nerris Nassiri from Aputure will show you five basic key lighting patterns you can create with only one light.

Photography Dustin Dolby is a great source of information for creating small product photography. Especially with minimal kit. He often uses just one or two speedlights to create multiple lighting setups, and then composites them in post. In this video, Dustin goes into a lot more detail about the actual shooting process and how he uses the light to build shape and form.
If you’re new to studio photography, you may want to take it one step at a time. Or literally one light at a time. You can make great studio portraits and create different setups with a single light.
