For this shot, a white Calla (or Kalla) was set Upside-Down in front of a black Cardboard. The black Cardboard was mounted on a Softbox. It covered the surface of the softbox about 90%. The light from the softbox hits the object in front of the black cardboard like a Ringflash. This creates a [...]

The challenge with this jewelry is the balance of hard light vs. soft light. The biggest part of this necklace is a high polished, glossy part. Also the shape is rounded. To make this visible on a Photo you will have to create a gradient to make the rounded form visible, and a highlight [...]

Although we have been taught not to play with our food, I can guarantee you, the pineapple tasted delicious - after the shot. I wanted to shoot a fruit in a way, where the light shines through the inside of it, in a semitransparent style, in front of a black background. I prepared the [...]

I got this nice Ballpoint Pen from MontBlanc called "Starwalker - Cool Blue". The Surface of this Pen has somekind of a wave pattern which is barely visible when there is not enough Light to reflect from the Surface. So, to make this visible, a lot of Light is needed and the Lens to [...]

Sculpture of Water Everything you see on this picture is a combination of real Shots using - just water. Liquid Shot Photography can be very fun and very messy. The lighting Setup is very simple. I just used two Stripboxes, one aligned horizontally the other one vertically. Both strobes are set on action mode, [...]

Normally a whole scenery should be taken with one Lighting-Setup. But rules have been made to be broken, right? This picture is a composition of actually 4 Pictures. The only things which are constant are the camera settings, 1/200 sec (Sync Speed), aperture f8 and ISO 200, and the focal lenth, to have all [...]

How about a hot cup of coffee, or maybe with some milk? Here are two examples of a shot of a cup of coffee on roasted coffee beans. The idea was a shot of hot coffee after the beans were ground. Both pictures were created using a 3-Light Setup. 2 Lights behind a diffusor, [...]

When shooting with Strobes, in most cases the Shutter of the DSLR is set to Sync-Speed. Sync-Speed is the shortest possible Shutter Setting, where both curtains are still open, so the whole Sensor (or Film) is exposed to the incoming Light. Usually it is around 1/200 s depending on the Camera model. At 1/200 [...]

This unique pattern is the result of the Damasteel Knife Production. So how to shoot this knife and give it a dramatic, dark look. The surface of the Damasteel is Semi-Glossy, almost matt, and a little curved. To make this visible it is very helpful to create a gradient light. I wanted the light [...]

Der Rauch einer ruhenden Zigarette oder besser noch von Räucherstäbchen kann ziemlich interessante Formen annehmen. Da ich schon seit längerem so etwas photografieren wollte und das Wetter derzeit für Outdoor Photografie eh nicht wirklich besonders einladend ist, habe ich mich jetzt dazu entschlossen. Ausgestattet mit einer schwarzen Leinwand, zwei Stativen, einem externen Blitzgerät, Räucherstäbchen [...]
