Product photography tutorial: How to photograph glasses using reverse tilt-shift

In this video I show you my lighting setup for a commercial glasses shoot and explain how to use techniques such as reverse tilt-shift and focus stacking to overcome the depth of field issues often experienced when working at high magnifications.

For this particular shoot, the client wanted two shots — one where the glasses were sharp all the way through (which I achieved using focus stacking) and another shot where only the front face of the product was sharp and the arms drifted out of focus really quickly (I used tilt-shift in a reverse format to do this).

In addition to explaining how I used these techniques, I also explain my lighting setup for this product shoot.
