85mm 1.8 on 5D Mark ii, f/22, 1/160, ISO 320. I had been shooting everything at the machine shop with my 35mm 1.4 for a while, but I’m starting to like the longer lens for shots like this now.
LP160 at full power into 45" shoot-through umbrella opposite the camera and slightly to the left.
LP160 at full power into 60" reflective umbrella behind and above me (and slightly to the right).
50" white pop-up reflector opposite the camera and to the right of the shoot-through umbrella. This almost forms half of a light tent along with the umbrella.
Triggered by a pair of Pocket Wizard Plus ii tranceivers and the optical slave function on the other LP160.
I’m thinking about getting a 100mm macro lens for shots like this. I am pretty much at the minimum focusing distance of the 85mm 1.8 here. Or I might get a 12mm extension tube. I think the 85 worked pretty well here, but these are big parts (I think it’s a 2ftx2ft pallet). I would like to be able to shoot products that are smaller than this in a similar style, so I’m trying to figure out if I should get a macro lens and/or the 12mm tube.
Be sure to post any comments/questions/suggestions that you have on the lighting, or anything else…
