Shooting white subject on a white background could be a quite challenging task of studio tabletop photography, and I was pleased to see how good you guys are:-) Talking about those photographers who submitted their work on our weekly assignment.
Meet our team of this week:
Curtis Hustace, Tim Kou, Terry Croom, Inna G, Barry MacKenzie, Chan Ziyuan Kenneth, Aurelien Jacak, Martins Ribeiro, Edgaras Bendikas, Lynn Burtnett, Paul Whittingham, Bob Noble and Pawel Pie.
Thank you guys, everyone did a great job!
Lets talk about it?
White on white, the best shots:
As usual, the lighting setups from every shot can be found on the forum: White subject on a white background: deadline 11-18-2012
Word of wisdom for newcomers:
Do not miss the opportunity to learn from solutions and mistakes photographers did here, go and check the lighting setup for each shot and try to find out what was done right and wrong.
Understanding the light is essential to become a successful photographer, and this is true especially in tabletop, the most “technical” type of photography.
The winner of the assignment
