Large Furniture shots! HOW TO LIGHT LARGE?
Aug 24, 2011

I have been shooting products for sales materials, catalogs, online, etc... for a couple of years now out of necessity. I have about 80 Albums on there mostly each represents a different product. If you sort view by title they will appear more organized.

Please take a look at my product photography. Furniture of this size is proving difficult to light sufficiently.

Interested in techniques or tips to deal with problem. I am using about 12 sets of 1000 Watt (500W x 2) halogens. I do keep the 40 flourescents on overhead as well to add spectrum.

I post process in DDP + cut out background with Pen in PS - CS3.

This is time consuming, but my main issue seems to lighting - run another 8k watts in there? I am using quite a few circuits as it is. Expensive ($,$$$) light set are not really an option at this point.
