Re: How to achieve 'perfect' whites in Hi Key?

Hi Paul

Thanks for the comments.

In product shots like these, the product is actually sitting on the 'background' so there is no separation between subject and background that allows it to be lit with 2 stops difference. So how would you get around that?

Secondly, although I understand the idea behing what you have done, could you say which program you're using and how you could replicate that in Lightroom 2.xx (I haven't upgraded to LR3).


Olympus E-30 | Falcon 8mm fisheye | 8mm fisheye | 12-60mm | 25mm f/2.8 pancake | 40-150mm | 50-200mm | 70-300mm | Tamron 135mm f/2.5 | EX-25 | FL-36R | YN460 & YN460-II | B&W ND110 | Lightroom 2.7 | Photoshop CS3
