    hey everyone,

    i'm shooting 2 -3 ft crystal chandeliers for a catalog. two-point lighting @ a 45 degree angle, black velvet backdrop. what kind of lens/filters should i use in order to achieve best results with crystal?

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks!!!

    I would most definitely shoot at least a few shots with a polarizer. You've got so much glass that the reflections could prove to be a total nightmare.

    Polarizer....
    But you could try moving the lights, no? Maybe backlit would be cool.
