shaping objects with light
Light and composition are more important than the subject itself. There is nothing more true to illustrate this concept I am teaching to my Photography Class Students, than product shot.
By Franc Peret
Product shots are usually done for commercial purpose, and pictures have to be more attractive than the object its self to be considered as successful.
The Magic of light shaping
By learning how to use Light sources, a professional photographer is going to achieve that result, but each object will represent a different challenge according its shape, its reflection, its purpose and the target mood.
Case by Case study
A slice of pizza is not light up and shot the same way than a camera, a jewel or a shower head (which is actually the most difficult). Only the understanding of quality of light, family of angle, masking with shadow and post processing can make a good shot possible.
