The Ultimate Product Photography Lighting Setup

Getting a lighting setup that fits many different products is key for many online businesses. In Ecommerce photography, the color, size, and glossiness can vary a lot from an object to another. Let’s learn the ultimate product photography lighting setup that will provide you with the versatility and image quality to make your Ecommerce studio more efficient.

We aim here to get a nice and elegant product photograph, on white background, with a clean reflection underneath.

The lighting setup must be the most versatile possible. We want to make sure that whatever medium-sized product we photograph, the result will be great. The time saving of beeing able to use the images Straight Out Of the Camera with a consistent result can have a real impact on your business, depending on the number of products you shoot. Using broncolor lighting equipment, no retouching is required. Power output and colours stay consistent from a shot to another. 

Whether you photograph shoes, cosmetics, or perfume, this lighting setup will fit perfectly. 

Let’s learn more in details how to setup your lights.

First, cover up a white table with a white, shiny acrylic plate. This will give the underneath product reflection. Another similar plate is then positioned vertically100cm behind the table. This plate is backlit with a 90×120 cm Softbox that guarantees an even and clean illumination of the background. One Siros 800S set to 400 J is used for this.

Second, an Octabox 150 is placed 70 cm above the object and provides the general illumination of the entire set and object. It might seems slightly oversized, but the softness of this light lowers the contrast of the photos and guarantees, that it works on shiny as well as very dark and even white objects. The studio light used in the Octabox is a Siros 400S set to 132 Joules.

To give the object a more three-dimensional look it is important to have a certain direction in the lighting. A smaller Octabox 75 from the right (or from the left!) is in charge of this. It is positioned at an angle of about 35 degrees and at a distance of 90 cm from the object. Here, I use Siros 400S at 283 Joules.

The only little detail that customizes the light is a white or black cardboard on the opposite side of the Octabox 75. Use the white one for dark and shiny objects while the black one increases the contrast of very bright and/or low-contrast objects.

Fashion For A Social Cause

On Sunday 14 October, we joined Professional Photographers Association Singapore (PPAS) at Marina South Pier MRT station for a shoot to support Fashion For A Social Cause by Singapore Fashion Runway. The main shooting area for groups was equipped with a Para 177 and two 30 x 180 strip softboxes with Pulso G lamps, while a smaller set-up for individual portraits was equipped with an Octa 150 and Unilite lamp. Participating photographers included Ukay Cheung, Ruth Soh, John Yuen, Aaron Ang, Eujin Goh and Tennant Lim.

Light Shapers – Softboxes

We resume our weekly highlight on Broncolor light shapers with SOFTBOXES in various formats; square, rectangle, strip and Octa. Detailed specifications on each softbox may be found here.

As with our previous post on Reflectors , the constants are as follows;

Camera: Phase One XF IQ3 100MP

Lens: Schneider Kreuznach 240mm LS f/4.5 IF

Exposure: F/11, 1/125s, ISO 50

Lamp: Broncolor Unilite 3200 powered by Scoro 3200 S

The front surfaces of the softboxes were maintained at a distance of 1m from the subject’s face to ensure the comparisons are fair.

The variables are the softboxes and the power level on the Scoro to adjust for the varying intensity of the light. The Scoro S power level ranges from 1.0 to 10.0 with every round number being halve of the next; eg. 10.0 = 3200 J, 9.0 = 1600 J, 8.0 = 800 J, etc.

We strongly recommend that you view the images below on a calibrated monitor instead of a mobile device. The differences for most of the images are subtle so the small screens may not display them accurately. Although the shots were taken tethered through Capture One, none of the images has been edited in any way.

We start off with comparison groupings by the softbox categories.

OCTA 7520181004_SOFTBOXES_OCTA75

OCTA 15020181008_SOFTBOXES_OCTA150

We realize the differences are incredibly subtle and the results of these demonstrations are not sufficient for most photographers to form definitive conclusions upon. Hence, we will conduct more demonstrations over the next few weeks to further present the unique characteristics of each softbox. This will include half body portraits and various angles of light source to show relativity between softbox sizes and light coverage.

To be continued…
