New Photography - Silver on a White Background
So, now that I have my fancy new camera lens (more of which here), I thought I’d have a go. It has been a rather headache-inducing experience, as if you just plonk the silver on a white background and take the shot, the background always comes out grey.
I tried one of the light panels from Tabletop Studio (http://www.tabletopstudio.co.uk/Pages/IlluminatedFlatPanelsMenu.htm) but wasn't overly impressed, as it's not very bright at all compared to the tabletop lights.
After much faffing about with the lighting (and a great deal of tweaking in Lightroom and Photoshop) I’ve managed to get them almost white. Well, white ish. Or cream. Beige?
This was the whitest I could get it, but then it overbrightens the silver and I had to attempt some Photoshop faffery. Back to the drawing board!
