In product photography, there are often some reflective products, especially some stainless steel products and some specular reflective products, which are reflective products that are more difficult to handle in advertising photography. The choice of background is generally black and white, mainly based on the background of these two colors, whether it is a white background or a black background, when shooting reflective products is completely different from the concept of shooting other products.
How to deal with these reflector products? For example, if you shoot a stainless steel vacuum flask and put this reflective product on the shooting table, you will find that there is a light source that should not exist in the stainless steel vacuum flask. These non-existent light sources have methods to deal with. It is necessary to build a shed, which is different from other sheds. Because it requires special materials to handle such a reflective product, it must be constructed with a transparent material such as soft paper or sulfuric acid paper. In principle, it is made of sulfuric acid paper or The soft-light paper encloses the product, leaving only the position of the camera's lens. Look carefully. If the light is separated by a layer of sulfuric acid paper, its light is a hazy mist. Since the reflected product is too strong, it is necessary to cover all the reflected things with sulfuric acid paper, so that the product can be photographed to produce a clean and simple effect.
When shooting a reflective object with a black background, highlight the product in such a dark environment. First, highlight the outline of the product, adjust the size and thickness of the outline according to different requirements. The more the light is, the more it will be illuminated. Small, the finer the outline of the product being photographed, the more forward it moves, the larger the position he is illuminated, the larger the contour of the product being photographed, and the position of the lamp can be adjusted according to different requirements. But there is a problem to be aware of, although the outlines on both sides of the product are beautiful, but the middle is very dark. At this time, a suitable light is added. This light arrangement has certain difficulty. This light is not strong. Can't be higher than the outline light on both sides. If the light is low, it will not look like this product is very dark. It must have a proper light, and the strength and quality should be well controlled to capture the ideal effect. In the process of shooting, you must constantly practice, careful lighting can achieve the final result.
