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.

"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."
