So what's your setup for photographing your shelf queens/ collections? 

I am most definitely a photography amateur and taking that "perfect" picture can be quite a challenge. Half the problem might be that I just use my phone and try use what sunlight comes through the window "difficult right now during dull German winters". 

So my question is; how do you take your "perfect" pictures?

The camera you use most definitely makes a big difference, so what cameras do you use?

Lighting; I do my best to use natural sunlight when it permits. Key word permits. I have tried to take pictures under my cool white LEDs in my display and find that the chrome oh my reels leaves a bright reflection in images. So what lighting setups and sort of lights do you use? How can I negate these bright reflections on the chrome parts?

Is it worth investing in a photobox or lightbox? 

Please feel free to add and tips and tricks for myself and others on how to step up out porn shoots. 

Here is an image of my bape lures which I like a lot. I find the shadowing and lighting interesting but I haven't been able to replicate it.

I suspect most of us have dealt with similar issues. Personally, just my phone, which as luck would have it pretty much stays with in todays world. Easy, compact, and phones today come with many filters to alter photos if you want. Lots of options.

I'm no expert, but I know direction of light is everything. Same with fishing really. But with indoor photos using two lights in opposing direction will tend to equalize helping avoid the flash you describe. Light coming straight down will unavoidably reflect back up. So rather than be under light, try to surround with light instead.

Multiple light sources and diffusion/reflected light are key for shadow taming and minimizing glare off of those really glossy/chrome parts. But if you’re looking for a dramatic effect utilizing 1-2 light sources, your camera angle is the key to eliminating reflection/glare. Yes, a small lightbox is great. Will definitely help with reflections, given the camera angle is good. Also…stay away from just cool white (60-65k) LEDs. What’s called a Bi-color (warm and cool mixed) led is a great “natural light” alternative. Not to mention, you can mix that natural light with artificial light, if you use your artificial light to “offset” the direction of the natural light. In other words set up your artificial light on the opposite side of where the natural light is projecting. This will soften shadows and give you a better, more rounded/well lit pic.

@rise That's an answer packed with information, a lot to take in. I think I need to try some of your pointers out bit by bit and experiment to see what works best.

  • Recently purchased a ring light and made a "white box" type shadow box to use with my DSLR, although I admit most of mine are with a Google pixel 5 and portrait mode 😂😂

@bigjoepnw Looking foward to seeing how pictures turn out with your new purchase. A before and after photo could be interesting.
