I had a chance to do a great set of pictures for the presentation of a new brand sold on Amazon.

I always like challenge and what is more challenging than lighting round objects full of reflection, such as glasses, bottles, ice ball and mirror table?
We worked in my office, in a small space but we succeeded in producing a wide range of shots.
Some are simple product shots, others are more moody and I love those.
We worked very well together with Vida Viva Home Ltd representative having fun on a full day work.
For this job, I used 2 different types of camera:
1 – Nikon D800 full frame with a Nikkor 85mm f1.4D, Nikkor 105mm f2.5, Nikkor 180mm f2.8, and a set of Pentax 6×7 lenses (75mm f2.8, 105mm f2.4 and 135mm f4 Macro) mounted on my Nikon camera with an adapter.
I like those medium format lenses as they get a more organic feel and are designed to work with smaller Aperture without diffraction problem.
2 – Panasonic lumix GH4 (M43) with 42.5mm f1.2 lens.
This allowed me to get different point of view and more depth of field when needed
As you should know, smaller sensor means more depth of field.
Technically This affirmation is not perfectly accurate, but the effect is there.
Please have a look and enjoy!
