Thanks to members in here I have put together my lighting set up this past weekend. I have been playing around with it for the last few days in preparation for a shoot I will be doing on the weekend which involved shooting musical instruments.
So I figured why not practice on my guitar!
After struggle though some lighting configuration, I managed to arrive at something decent, I guess...
Thanks to all who have helped me along this process!
Please C & C. I really need it and I can take it with the best of them!
(Aside from the guitar stand as a distraction and the wrinkled up Muslin...)
A full bodied shot proved much more challenging than the above. This is all I could muster...
Guitar about 5 feet away on the first shot and 3 feet away on the second shot from the BG. No room for more. Genesis 200 with shoot through umbrella half opened about 3 feet away camera right at the side of the guitar, perhaps pointed a little towards the BG. Genesis 200 bare, camera left, 7' high, pointed down towards the right side of the guitar in an attempt to fill in the darker area around there. Various reflectors for highlighting the guitar surface.
