Tips for Photographing Shiny Things
Here are a few very quick tips and things to think about if you are photographing something shiny.
- Clean it – use the “appropriate cleaner” – trust me you will thank me later.
- Wear gloves – so you have spent precious time cleaning it, you don’t want to get finger prints on it.
- Shiny things will have reflections on their surfaces, so be aware of what you can see in your image.
- Keep a lint free cloth to hand – dont use anything that is fluffy or may scratch the surface of your subject.I am a commercial product photographer based in East Sussex who is passionate about photographing shiny things from jewellery, to glass, Liquids to food.
