Re: Lighting Metals? Sandblasting? Chroming?

Posting a photo of one of these things might help everyone a lot in being able to give advice. As said above, it probably comes down to lighting - and also to the effect you're trying to achieve.

Back in the pre-digital days, I did a lot of work for a company which made castings and brushed steel equipment. Although there were some setups I used over and over, I learned there was no "one-size-fits-all" solution to shooting this stuff.
