 009 Product Two Light

     It occurs to me that I put up that whole grid tutorial and never posted how I shot it. Well today, the mystery comes out. For small product photography like this you generally want a seamless backdrop, which is usually paper, and very diffuse, even lighting.  This series I did using a roll of Epson enhanced matte, don’t buy that, (mine was a defective roll I got from work a long time ago) just get some bullentin board paper from the party store.  
  • First hang your paper from either a stand or cut a peice out and tape it up to a near by wall and drape it gently down to a table. You want the curve to be present, no corner. You may want to tape it to the table once in place.
  • For lighting, I prefer to have two lights in large umbrellas placed above and to both sides of the paper, as close as you can get ‘em.
  • Set them around 1/4 power to start and lower as you need to. There will be a lot of light if this is done correctly, so you won’t have to use a low aperture. Infact, for great detail, you may want to try and use f/8 if possible.
  • For consistency and ease of use, I mounted my camera on a tripod and was using a release cable. The cable is great because I can be moving things and shooting without having to step behind the camera everytime.
  • If you are going to have your hands in the shot, use the self timer.
  • Play with this, it is a fun way to do pictures of product shots and is great for doing stock photos as well.
