First of all, everything I was told changed when I arrived on site. I was told solid wood door slabs with no glass or hardware. As you can see these all have glass, hardware and some have custom iron work. So I had to change my plan from the get go.

Doors had to be shot straight on to match some existing photography.

So here are a couple of my final shots. Ended up bouncing 2 continuous lights off some large boards from the front sides and using a warmer light to backlight the glass. Had to mix a couple different exposures on the textured glass to get it to pop at all (bottom slab photo).

All in all, the client is happy and I learned a ton from the studio manager on location.

Thanks for anyone who gave me some honest advice. It was appreciated.
