Electric Guitar Product Photography

Photographing black on black products can be hard enough as it is, but things become even more complex when the product has a glossy texture and curved shapes.

In this class, Karl demonstrates how to overcome the challenges of shooting a black gloss product on a black background as he photographs an electric guitar. Throughout the shoot, you’ll learn about his lens choice and camera settings; how he uses a tilt-shift adapter to achieve sufficient depth of field; why gradient lighting is best to highlight the shape of the guitar; and how to create precise patches of light to accentuate key features of the instrument.

NOTE: This class is due for release in the upcoming months.
