Paul describes in detail the ins and outs of lighting a product shot of a knife with speed lights. He uses a FourSquare softbox with only one flash inside and three more outside for edge, back, and side lights.
Disclaimer: This is our first video with new equipment so please excuse the sub par quality. We have since resolved the issues. Instead of pitching the whole video, we decided to post it anyway due to the value of the content.
In the second shot here, we spritzed the knife with water.
These are three different options for packing out a portable lighting kits that all fit into the Lightware MF2010 Carry On case. The MF2012 case and the FourSquare softboxes are both available at http://lightwaredirect.com
This is a behind the scenes shot of Paul videotaping Dave while he uses the FourSquare for some amazing motocross shots. The sky could not have been more perfect. It made for some truly amazing shots and a not to shabby video. Hang tight, the full web video will be released any time now.
