Re: Lighting up belts for product shots

I think it will largely depend on the material the belts and buckles are made from. Shiny, smooth leather? Coarse fabric? Textured, patterns, artistic weaves? You may want a broad softbox in close to show a mirror-like surface, or a cross-light to show texture, or both. Should be fun!

The best book on this is stuff is Light Science and Magic.
