Barn doors keeping the light from spilling on to much of the table surface

Lighting control and triggering:

Paul C. Buff cyber commander used to adjust power on ultra 1800 and trigger cyber synchs on the Lumopro 120’s

Camera controlled thru CamRanger- using the camranger to use live view and controlling camera settings wirelessly. The CamRanger lets you view and control all camera functions from an Ipad or Iphone.(nice piece of equipment)

Table top is inexpensive laminate flooring from Home Depot.

Post Processing:

I used Lightroom 5 for basic post processing which included warming up the entire image and then pulling all that warmth off the top label and side label.  I also used Lightroom to crop the image, add contrast and clarity to the overall image as well as a vignette

The image was then moved to OnOne Perfect enhance 8 where I used the HDR adjustment bush on the top label and side label to sharpen them up and add contrast and the boarder was also added in OnOne.

The final stop was in Photoshop CC to clean the image up. Spot removal etc.
