Photographing shiny stainless steel - tearsheet

Published on Tue Jul 9, 2013 by

A couple of months ago I blogged about a challenging commission, stainless steel, highly reflective, product photography at an enginnering company here in Merseyside.  The most common problem in stainless steel photography are reflections.  Every object which surrounds it mirrors its image, including lighting rigs and the photographer. So I had to build an enormous tent around a large value, big enough to include a model in the shoot operating the kit.

The client and I were really pleased with the results - which of course included a lot of post-production work. Below are some tearsheets showing the finalised versions on publicity material. I've been asked back to do a similar project this week - this time it included a pressure unit 1.5m tall !

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
