Digium card photo shoot
Today I needed to shoot some Digium interface cards for 888VoipStore.com. The challenge was that I wanted to get a vertical shot with a reflection underneath. The reflection was simple, just shoot the product over a sheet of thick plexiglass that is sitting on top of a sheet of white muslin. Getting the card to “stand up” required a little bit of thought. At first I tried some acrylic blocks but that stood out too much and would require more Photoshop work than I wanted to do. The same thing happened with white blocks. The final solution turned out to be super simple. I used a boom arm and suspended the cards using fishing line. With the strobes going off the fishing line just disappeared making touch-ups for real fast.
