Product studio photography lesson for beginners: working with clear glass

Shooting clear glass on white and black background. Product photography online course

This is the third lecture from our “Tabletop Studio Photography for beginners” course. As usual, this is not a full lecture, but highlights from the lecture along with final images and few lighting setus

In this lecture I explain how to shoot clear glass subjects. The technique will work for a variety of glass subjects, and I am sure that knowing how to work with glass is one of few “must” for a commercial studio product/jewelry photographer.

Bellow is a little video introduction where I explain what will be in this lecture, and why I selected this particular style for our example shots.

 

 

Below are some of the images we got during the lecture shot, as well as two lighting setups. I know that lighting setups will provide useful information for experienced photographers, and hopefully will give few good ideas to beginners on which direction to go for shots like these.

And for this below shot I’ve used only 1 light source. Let me be a badass and not to share the lighting setup, so you’ll have a good exercise to guess and post results on a Photigy forum.

The whole lecture is more than 1.5 hours of video and for now, available only for the course’s students and Photigy Pro Corner subscribers
