Looking for tips on product shots.
 
I have a lot more coming up and I'm looking for tips to elevate them specifically lighting, color and lensing. 
 
Recent Shots:

Camera: FS7
Lenses: Canon L Zooms (all f2.8).
Graded with Filmconvert and Magic Bullet.
 
No option for overcranking since we had to work inside of an active factory with no control of the overheads fluorescents.

Hi,

 

I would comment on two things.

 

One the second shot, where the "X" is sewn on the belt,

the following of the action with camera or maybe it was pan/crop in edit,

left me with kind of a disorienting feeling.

 

I think a static shot with the movement in frame being only the machine and the

operator hands would be enough.

 

 

And the second thing, when the black part of the belt is sewn with white thread,

the material from the other shots looks like leather, but here it is almost jet black,

i can't readily see what it is.

 

There are some weak, bare reflections on it but not enough

to show me concisely what it is, material wise.

 

In the next shot i can clearly see there is leather with reflection and texture.

 

 

Bring that up in the shot in question.

 

 

Either you crushed the blacks, by that removing all reflection and texture,

or there wasn't enough of it in the first place.

 

Improve with a softbox, foamboard, show card or anything white, placed in a manner to reflect in the leather.

If it doesn't show enough texture that way, also add some light to rake across the surface to bring it up.

 

 

Best

 

Igor

Looks good, the only shot that could be better is that close-up of the black belt being stitched, I agree with Igor, it needs some reflections on it to bring out its texture.
