360 Product View Notes
We used the Iconasys 4 Light LED Studio Kit to create a High Key Lighting Technique (to shoot the 360 Product View on a pure 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 guitar – 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 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)
