Learn About Managing Reflections in This Simple Product Photography Tutorial

As far as product photography instruction goes, it's not too common to see a good (free) tutorial video that breaks down the tricks behind capturing challenging cosmetic products. Nikonian Academy trainer Andrew Boey not only makes this topic very approachable, he shows you how to do it on the cheap.

You can make every reflector/flag he uses. The 8-minute long video starts with the overall approach and final result. However, he immediately goes on to explain exactly why the pieces he used to make the shot were absolutely crucial.

There are a lot of challenges when shooting small products. Even more if they happen to be a combination of transparent and reflective materials. If you're an aspiring product photographer, and you're in a learning mood...take 8 minutes out of your day and listen to the man.
