More high end product photography of shiny stuff !

Published on Thu Aug 8, 2013 by David Colbran

Completed recently some more high-end product shots and photography for an engineering company here in Merseyside. As before the items were technically challenging to photograph as they were reflective metal and much larger than the previous shiny product photography job with the same client. Stainless steel is notoriously difficult to photograph successfully - it reflects everything around it, including the photographer. 

Rather than valves, this time it was air pressure units, which blast air or cleaning liquids through the valves to maintain lab conditions of cleanliness. These were nearly 2 metres tall, so again it took quite a lot of preparation before the shoot to build a white tent around the item, with enough room for a model to step inside to demonstrate. I used a combination of white paper backgrounds and a series of white sheets to create a reflection free structure and then shot through a small hole in the material. As before I needed a large difused light source via a umbrella rig and second directional light to illuminate correctly without causing undue reflections.
