Product Photography

From time to time I am asked to undertake product photography.  I find this area of photography enjoyable especially when it touches on subjects that interest me.  The benefit of product photography is that generally you control the light, depth of field and background drops.  So there is little that can go wrong.  

This week I came across an old Royal Ulster Constabulary night helmet, worn in urban areas in Belfast and Londonderry during the 1960s after which it was withdrawn.  In selecting an aperture above f9 more than adequate depth of field will be achieved.  The light was provided by a single speed light fired through a large brolly, sufficient to illuminate the item and the background.
