360 Product View Example: Notes
Although the dimmable LumiPad 360 Product Photography Lighting Panels would have done a great job for shooting this Plastic Water Bottle, we created a High Key Lighting Technique using our 4X of our LED Studio Lights and a white paper backdrop. We positioned 1 light on either side of the bottle (to illuminate the bottle) then 2 lights positioned at the backdrop to create high key lighting technique. We set each of the side lights to about 50% dimming and back lights at full power. We also used two white 20 x 30″ white foamboard sheets to help eliminate side reflections.
Using the Iconasys Silver Series MID 360 Photography Turntable, 72 frame capture took ~3 minutes (automated process though Shutter Stream 360 Software in a turn, stop, snap workflow). We added a Snap delay of 0.5 seconds to eliminate any liquid movement inside the bottle.
We applied some batch image editing in the Shutter Stream 360 Software. These included:
Rotate: adjusted the image 0.5 degrees CW as we had shot this slightly crooked (used the image alignment tool to help with this)
Levels: Minimal adjustments to white levels to achieve white background
White Balance: Slight adjustment to color temperature (as we 360 image set using Auto White Balance)
