What It Takes

     I was recently on a product shoot for a large medical company photographing a brand new product for a brochure that required SEXY lighting.  Often times, I don't think people realize what goes into photographing the things they see in magazines and in this case brochures.  So, I thought I would give you a glimpse into the world of what it takes to make something look fabulous.
     For this particular assignment it took 15 lights, 11 power packs, 14 extension cords, 27 stands, 5 sheets of plexiglass, 5 mirrors, multiple flags and cutters, 4 exposures with one camera and a mono stand.
Now I can't show the actual product, but I thought it was very interesting and a bit crazy when it was all done to see what it took to make this one shot.
