When doing product shots in the studio, reflective surfaces could be very tricky to handle. But of course, there are methods to deal with them and light them to show all their beauty. In this video, Dustin Dolby of Workphlo shares a comprehensive tutorial on lighting and photographing tricky, reflective products. And what’s more, you don’t need fancy gear. Prepare simple lighting modifiers, your DIY spirit, and Photoshop.
There are plenty of cheap, DIY product photography tricks (the one with a garbage can will probably forever be my favorite). If you’re on a tight budget, you can always use one of these and get professional-looking shot without using tons of expensive gear. In this video, Ed Verosky shows you how to take great product photos at home using just one light.
Commercial product lighting is very challenging. Whether you’re shooting stills or video, you never know what type of product you might need to shoot from day to day. It often presents unique challenges for you to overcome, too. Not least of which is satisfying your client’s personal tastes.
If you need a light tent you can easily carry anywhere, Adam Rahn of DroiMedia has a fantastic DIY solution. In this video, he shows you how to make your own portable booth for product photography. It’s simple to make, easy to carry around, and it will cost you no more than $10 to build.
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.
Dustin Dolby from Workphlo is known for his product photography tutorials that give professional results without too much fancy gear. In his latest video, he shows you how to shoot small products using a $10 IKEA Melodi lamp. This time, you won’t need an IKEA lamp as a light source. Instead, it serves as a sort of a light tent for creating soft and even light. Dustin guides you through his setup for this shoot, but also through the post-production process.The entire setup is pretty affordable and gives great results, so take a look.
Everyone needs to photograph products once in a while.
