Here is one of the photos from my first attempt at pen photography. I used two light sources for this image. One overhead video light giving a slight glow on the pen and using a bounced small hotshoe flash as the main fill light. I realized that I need to add more light to the button of the pen after I wrapped things up :)



Mahogany and Cherry using a vintage slimline kit.

Thank you.

Sorry for the large size. Getting to know the upload code.
Need a darker back drop IMO.
Once you start to photographing pens with a clear ( Smooth) finish
then you will have issues with polarized reflection.
And All Your lighting will have to be changed.

Buy and read the book Light Science and magic.
