Product photography with XZ-2 and remote flash
Sep 16, 2013

(these could have just as easily been done with the XZ-1 which my wife unfortunately gave away to her brother, necessitating the purchase of XZ-2 )

Combination of 3 lights on the right, one back and a catchlight from the left

Too many lights for me to remember

For this shot I went for a softer look.  Ambient light plus 8 lights surrounding the product.

This one is actually shot in natural light

For my purposes the XZ-1/2 can do everything a pro camera can--a flexible range of focal lengths, flash hotshoe, ability to control 3 banks of 3 flashes, etc.

The kicker?  I only have one flash unit   Guess how the multiple lighting effect is achieved?
