Stainless steel, highly reflective, product photography - tips, tricks and advice

Published on Tue Mar 26, 2013 by

I was recently commissioned to take high quality product shots of a variety stainless steel valves on site in a factory. I used the combination of a large hand made light tent with an open front and white reflectors (simple foamcore boards) to control reflections and eliminate color cast from room and camera / myself. Outside the tent I used two light sources either side, one shot through a really large umbrella to difuse the light as much as possible and cut down major areas of flash reflection. The client was really pleased with the end result and has already booked me for additional work, including some detailed post-processing manipulation.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
