Polpis Table V

A friend had asked me to take some pictures of a table that he designed & sells on his website. Consisting of polished metal, the table was an interesting item to shoot. 2 flashes were used, a 550ex in a softbox (attached via off-shoe chord) and a 580ex held under the table legs via rubber-bands. The flash under the table provided the nice halo effect and lit the interior surfaces of the legs. The softbox provided the nice soft light to illuminate the table's surface.


Check the set for other shots. By playing with the angle of the light, you could easily make it a shiny surface, or a matte surface. Light, Science & Magic & Strobist was a huge help for this project.
