Rycote Microphone Windshields – Product Photography
We love a technical project and shooting these for Rycote Microphone Windshields Ltd presented us with a number of challenges.
Tasked with producing large scale images (100 Megapixels), with complete depth of field throughout the product, for use in both high and low key environments, we created a lighting set up to produce a gradient fall off that wrapped around the product, depicting its shape and texture.
Using medium format to capture those 100 Megapixels was handled brilliantly by the Fujifilm GFX100, and focus stacking around 10-15 shots per image to ensure a full depth of field, completed the capture phase.
We shot each angle on both high key and low key backgrounds to allow for an accurate representation of light bleed that simply cannot be recreated in post production.
A lot going on but the results are worth it. 😊
