What’s it like shooting products like the iPhone and iPad for Macworld and other clients?
The Verge interviewed product photographer Peter Belanger, and we have a feeling getting the job done requires a light stand or two.
Here’s an excerpt —
The team … always has a really well developed shot list and sketches of what they need. I work with their talented art directors to translate those sketches into photos.
We start by getting the position of the product and then move forward on lighting. Because [the] products have such carefully selected materials it is incredibly important to light the product in a way that will showcase the various materials accurately.
And here’s a great video of Peter at work.
