Tutorial: How to light paint product photo backgrounds on the cheap
(Digital Photography Review)

Dustin Dolby of workphlo is great at creating professional product shots using just one or two speedlights and some compositing in Photoshop. In this tutorial, he combines that approach-it takes just two speedlights to light these bottles, and he could have made due with one-with some simple smartphone light painting to create a dynamic and colorful soft drink product shot. Here are the four exposures he composited together to light just the bottle. One shot using a stripbox through a diffusion panel on the right, one with a reflector added in on the left, another to light the label, and a fourth to give the bottle a bit of pop from behind: $(document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({`containerId`:`embeddedSampleGallery_2436914201`,`galleryId`:`2436914201`,`isEmbeddedWidget`:true,`selectedImageIndex`:0,`isMobile`:false}) }); Combine that with a long-exposure light painting shot done in darkness by simply waving a smartphone with a solid color background around behind your product, and you get these two final images-one for each flavor: Check out the full video up top to see how all of these images were composited together to create the final product photos. And if you`re just getting into product photography and enjoy simple, one or two-light setups, definitely give the whole workphlo YouTube channel a look.
