Product shot lighting advice for deep etching (8 pics)

´╗┐Hi All

I recently came across some unusual products outside my experience and was after some advice

on how best to light them next time.

Products are shot onsite at a warehouse (low ceiling) and my y aim was to make my job as easy

as possible to deep etch or remove the background.

My approach was to have two lights on the subject and one on the backdrop hopefully blowing

it out to white. I found that in many instances i couldn't control the light bouncing back off the


My next approach would be to try putting lights behind the backdrop, but that wouldn't

help me near the ground. Green backdrop would be hard to light evenly in this situation.'

In the last example you get a better idea of how much light was bouncing back and

how it was effecting the photos. The smaller objects were easier.

Would appreciate your thoughts. Regards Pones
