360 Product View Notes
We used the Iconasys 4 Light LED Studio Kit to create a High Key Lighting Technique (to shoot 360 image set on white backgrounds). We positioned 2X lights at the background and set lights to full power. We then positioned 2X lights up front to light the golf bag – these were set at 50% dimming. By doing this, when we set the correct exposure for the product, the background is blown out to white.
We shot 72 frames (one capture every 5-degrees) then did some additional still imaging after the fact for the additional hot spot images. We applied some batch image editing in the Shutter Stream 360 Software. These included:
Levels: Minimal adjustments to white reference point to achieve white on turntable platform surface
Lasso Tool: Cut underneath the platform as this was caught in frame when shooting, then replaced with white (in a batch process)
