Do you have any questions about product photography?

Vic Peralta says:

Excellent video. This is the kind of video instruction we need. Keep it up!

Steven Kamradt says:

I have both a white and black project boards that I use as reflectors/flags. Very cheap and work very well. Grab two white ones and attach them together with some gaffers tape along one side. Then you can use it as a mini vflat. The black card I use for curved surfaces to kill some highlights and make the curve more accentuated.

Pierre Burnaugh says:

Nice video, it’s worth mentioning for those shooting with incandescent bulbs especially, color balancing concerns.

Stacked at last …

Bill Losse says:

Profoto is not budget, go to home depot and get some lights and then you'll have budget.

Stephanie Jones says:

I never would have thought about paper towels! Great educational video and fun! Thanks

Lysander Spooner says:

Parchment paper for baking makes a great diffuser and won't catch on fire. And when your done with photography you can bake cookies!

Chuck Devlin says:

The tip for creating defused light with paper towels and a picture frame was great. So simple, but I never thought about it. This will work for me – I have three tt685 speedlights and a x-pro trigger, but no defuser.

Jorgiño Luis says:

I wish I could learn how to shoot objects that the light seems to be coming inside from it… Maybe that could be next tutorial? I bought my hole cameraset at b&h. By the way my camera is Nikon D750

Trap Town SIC says:

I like! Keep it up! Would you like to be YouTube friends? 🙂

Michael Blade says:

Thanks for sharing I’m going to practice this with my Nikon d5600 and my lumecube light
