cazillo.com My first live product photography shoot! Keep shooting!
Light meter Greg?
I got my lighting from impact, 2 studio strobes, medium softboxes, 100w/s, for $100-$120, worked fantastically. Don’t need to start off with Speedlights that are overheating on usage, or needing higher ISOs, or even worse (if you don’t have a powerpack for them) run out of battery juice. Get the impact strobe lights set, great to start off with, portraiture or product, etc…
MAN-FRO-TOW is the preferred pronunciation
Even though you have lights, are you stull using flash? If so, where is that flash coming from?
I thought white balance was set with a white card, you are using a grey card. Also, how can this grey card calibrate your color in the camera. I am comfussed, are you shooting black and white ?
Great Video Greg, will you ever be doing another live one of these again in the futer?
Hey Greg, enjoyed your video. Very informative. Keep up the great work.
You need to diffuse the light more, usually with a larger light source. Thats on the of the issues with reflective product photography, it takes a lot of trial and error to figure it out!
Is there a way to get ride of that vertical strip of reflection on the top part of the bottle (the cap black label part)? Would a gobo work?
This is a Ukrainian Vodka, not a Russian one.
Great job Greg. I have a question with product photography is the rule of thirds necessary?
Greg, whot cable do you youse to connect the body to your PC ? it woud be great if you can tell me that, so i can buy that cable, thanks 😉
it’s “khortitsa premium”, a vodka named by the name of an island on ukraine’s river. don’t know about this type, but “khortitsa platinum” costs 5.96$ per 0.5 in Moscow’s common supermarkets, and i haven’t seen any of the students of my university drinking it. they all prefer a 6.23$ vodka, dunno why. maybe something wrong with the taste.
Great – I will look forward to seeing how it all works.
Probably but I prefer to do it in camera.
That is a long list, not going into it in a comment. One of these days I will make a video on my entire network setup…
Jeah hardware-setup and “file”workflow/archive would be great 🙂 Nice job!
What is inside there?
ohhhh thank you my friend 🙂 your videos are great, it woud be great if you can do more videos like this one 🙂 keep up your work 😉
Sorry prob didn’t explain that very well. They are just black foamcore, I bought them at Staples.
that 2 black cards that you youse for bloking the light….. in video that you youse…
Smaller light sources would have made smaller reflections which would not have looked good in this situation.
resolution is restricted to the google+ stream, they don’t allow hd.
You only have one choice, usb.
It isn’t a true ‘server cabinet’ as it doesn’t have fans and locks. Basically it cleans up my equipment so it looks better.
Google+ restricts it to the resolution you see.
No need to use mirror lock with 1/200th sec shutter and I can remote release from the computer.
Are you shooting mirror up? And why not use a remote release?
Really liked this video! I know its a long video but is there anyway next time it would be in HD?
I like the added foamboards, but would have tried different smaller light sources and always like to toy around with gels.
Greg, how does the server cabinet work, did you build it up yourself?
Hi Greg,, these are a great way to learn,,, but its hard work sticking around and watching it all,,, bit like watching paint dry,,, but still I stayed and enjoyed it with great interest in parts,,,,,thanks,, I’n buzy trying to photograph of a large wind glass, but struggling with reflections of the room,, thanks again,,,,Jimmy
Damn Greg, I lost it! 🙁
