Product Shot using Nikon's Creative Lighting System
May 31, 2012

Greetings All,

A few weeks ago I set out to do a glamour shot of my F6 using CLS. I was pleased with the results:

http://jbcrane.zenfolio.com/nikonf6/e175b1616

This uses 5 speed lights: the SB-600 (bare), SB-800 (through Lastolite TriGrip) and S-900 (through a umbrella), with two SB-R200's hand held above the bonnet, shooting through the white, frosted SW-12 included in the R1C1 Macro flash kit. It's on black plexiglass allowing the light fall-off to provide the "seamless" look, then a dark backdrop with some spill. I haven't shot many cameras and found it quite challenging with various surfaces, matte vs. reflective vs. shiny vs. rubber... an interesting challenge.

I'm not super experienced in product work so any comments or suggestions would be well received.

Thanks!
