I'll try to get a shot of my modified spigot.
Exactly. (sorry I didn't explain this better). We were shooting a chef preparing food on a dark granite counter top. The boom arm was high and behind the counter. The lights in front of the counter, would reflect off the boom arm and cause reflections on the counter top.
I'm probably making too big of a deal out of this. We've only had this problem once. But I thought I'd share anyway.
I've ran into this issue as well when taking pics of objects with reflective surfaces. The light will bounce off the object and hit the stand and pick it up reflect back onto the object. It's usually when photographing in macro mode but I've had a few instances where a black car has picked up the stand.
