Product Photography.

Here are some images and BTS shots of a product shoot i recently took. 

This was a first for me, and i learnt alot from it. 

My style was very dark, but next time ill make some light and fun shots.

 Here are some images taken from my iPhone, of how the lighting was made on the above images.

To create nice feathered light, a soft box wouldnt of been any use, as it generates solid light from edge to edge. Here i made some scrims, out of some pieces of wood and tracing paper. Nice and simple and Cheap

With using a continuous light source, it makes setting up product shot much easier, as you can move the light around, and see exactly what is happening.

 Even with the iPhone camera, you can see how the scrim produces nice graduated light.

I was shooting tethered to my iMac for this shoot. The reason for this was so i could see on a large screen the details.

Look around you for different textures. I really liked the base to the whiskey bottle and glass. It gives a nice reflection and looks expensive to give the shot a nice feel. And what did i use? 

yep a Guitar...
