I shot this on location in the factory. The task was to show what happens in the mixing chamber.
It looks like it's mixing! Did you cut this image out of the background or is the back of the factory that nice blue?
I used black seemless paper and a colored gel over the background light and a large softbox on the main light. Captured digitally.
Nice shot. really nice lighting. maybe you could diffuse the light somehow on the glass to lose the glare. what are they mixing? did you take any details of just the mixing? i'd like to see...
Excellent lighting composition and exposure!!!
This thing mixes ploymer and water... I dunno why. This is the only shot in the layout, so once I had it, I headed for home.
Thanks for the critique! Was hopin' to hear more.
a polorizer to cut some of the reflection from the glass.
I like the reflections on the glass, gives it depth without distraction. The bkgd is great. I havent tried gels on black seamless; I usually mix them with white. The effect is quite rich. Nice job.
Thanks! Actually, I put them there... deliberately. I thought the highlights would help communicate shape and surface.
Thanks again to all.
