There are few things I like better than shooting product in the studio. From cars to vodka, it’s just a gas. Every product has it’s challenges. This lift truck has mat black next to shiny red paint and black interior trim. Fortunately, the shiny red can be turned into a plus. With a blue background, it really pops. We did tons of shots this day, so there was not time to make everything perfect. Retouching is always necessary, it just a question of how much and where you spend your time. As always, I’m interested in your thoughts.
