360 Footwear Photography Notes
We had dimmed the light on the LumiPad LED Panels (about 10% dim on back light and about 40% dim on front lights). In the Shutter Stream 360 Software we applied the following edits:
Levels – Moved right reference point to a value of 243
Sharpness – increased to 1.5
Add Frame – Added 100 pixels (RGB 255,255,255 (color white) to the bottom of the frame
These editing changes were made to all images in 1 click using ‘Apply to All’ editing feature.
Using the Silver Series MID 360 Product Photography Turntable and Medium 360 Acrylic Riser we used a rotation speed of 1 (48 image capture took ~2 minutes). We had used the still imaging portion of the software to capture an additional image of top and bottom of the shoe by tilting the shoe on its side to create a top down effect. These top and bottom views were added to the 360 view as Image Hotspots.
We had shot this on a desktop set up and used three cinder blocks (sourced from Home Depot) to raise the back light and two front tower light panels to compensate for the riser height. We also used a single white foamboard sheet (included with medium lumipad 360 lighting kit) that was placed on top lighting panels to contain the lighting.
