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.

"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week – we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed."
