Tilt-and-shift lenses and adapters are most commonly used for architectural photography, but they can be a useful tool when photographing products too.
In this product photography class, Karl makes use of a tilt-and-shift adapter to overcome two particular challenges. He gives a clear explanation of what the adapter does, the benefits of using one and how to use it for product photography.
You’ll see two different lighting setups, one that makes use of largely indirect light for a broad, even effect, and one that makes use of small, carefully controlled pockets of light for a far more dramatic result.
In this class:
- Product photography: How to use a tilt and shift adapter
- How to photograph architectural instruments
- Scheimpflug principle
- How to avoid reflections in shiny metal objects
- Two light setup for soft, even light
- Lighting setups for dramatic effect
