Tutorial: How to Create the Perfect Gradient Reflection for Product Photography

When it comes to taking product shots of glossy items, one of the most difficult aspects is getting the correct amount of diffusion when using softboxes. When the incorrect amount of diffusion is applied (or the right amount is applied incorrectly) this can lead to harsh reflections and minimal gradients, which isn’t usually the look you’re trying to achieve.

In this short tutorial put together by Alex Koloskov of Photigy, he gives a great demonstration on how to overcome these problems and create the best looking gradients you possibly can when working on product shots.

Coinciding with the video, he has a full blog post up over on Photigy, which details specific shots and setups for those of you wanting a more in-depth explanation. Check out the video at the top, give the tips a try and let us know if it helps you step up your product photography game!
