  • Maybe this is the reason I have never had a problem carrying around a heavy camera/lens combination but never knew why. I have never used a strap for my cameras. I tried it once and the strap was ...
  • I continued photographing the pins today, and I was having the same problem with the gold looking black. I checked everything then read the fine print on the spray can of dulling spray. It says do ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts. I actually did take a sheet of white foam core and cut a hole for the lens. I then put light on the foam core. This is when I realized it was the actual lens that was ...
  • Thanks Keith, After I posted this thread I realized I should have posted it on the "Lighting" forum. However, I am glad I posted it here as I received a lot of good responses.
  • Thank you. I believe there is always a solution to a problem if you don't give up.
  • Replied in Problem solved.
    I used the Krylon Dulling Spray and this pretty much solved my problem. Here is a photo of the first pin I shot which had been sprayed. The gold is not as bright looking as it would be without the ...
  • I am a little surprised at all the comments on not taking the 24-70mm lens. I realize the weight of the 24-70mm lens as I have shot ballet performances where I held the 5D Mark III with the 24-70mm ...
  • Before you purchase a mirrorless camera I suggest you rent one for a couple of days, and test it under all the conditions you will shoot. I went the mirrorless route for about a year. I very much ...
  • I wish I could use the beam splitter glass. I called all over Southern Nevada and could not find anyone who stocks this product. A lot of the places I called would be happy to order it for me but ...
  • I keep forgetting my age. I keep thinking I am 20 years old until I look in the mirror and see that old man looking back at me, Unfortunately, this is a low budget job and I don't have the money ...
  • I have tried every type of lighting I can think of from a ring flash, shooting inside a white plastic bucket, flash from a large softbox, light bounced off the ceiling in the studio, and outside ...
  • Replied in Another idea
    I do  like the idea of the Krylon product. I checked this out and see the product can be wiped off. I am going out tomorrow to see if I can find a place to purchase this product. It is important ...
  • Replied in Another idea
    This is good thinking as it was the first thing I tried when I ran into problems shooting with a camera. Unfortunately, being there is such a large percentage of the pins that is gold, the results ...
  • The problem is, I was brought into this project late. The client has a website with a bunch of these pins showing already. What they did initially was not to photograph the pins, but use the ...
  • Yes. I tilted my subject and was able to make the gold color show as gold instead of black, but then I could see the bottom of the pin as it is a 3D object.
  • I don't want to prolong this thread, but I just finished reading the section of the book "Light Science & Magic" for the type of shoot I am trying to do. I was surprised to read they suggest the ...
  • I spent this morning going back to the basics. I took the photo below outside in a shaded area without using the bucket as I did before. When viewing the pin through the viewfinder, all the gold ...
  • You left me with my head spinning. Being a studio portrait photographer I have never used polarizing filters before. If I chose to go this route, I am going to have to educate my self on circular ...
  • Thanks for this suggestion. I have been trying to stay away from "fixing in Photoshop". On one of the images I just selected the black area and filled it with a gold color in Photoshop. While this ...
  • Thanks again. Since your original post I did find the Rosco 7300 filter. Thanks for the link to the REG/Lee filter.
