lighting leather is driving me crazy... each type of leather needs a different lighting setup.
All i've found after a morning of shooting is... nothing
And i'd rather not use a light tent. though i'vrealised i need one softbox from the top on a boom.
Edit: totally forgot why i posted here...
I used a 24" square softbox on camera right, kept changing the angle just beside me i had white chartpaper (A2 size) in a V shape diffused by thin cloth. in some shots, i held a bare flash above the bag which gave a really nice look but had a dark patch where there was less light.
Then i thought of how metal is lit, so i laid white cloth near the bottom of the bag, outside the frame, this had an effect but it was a bit too dull.
So, black is a no go for shooting leather. white gives instant results but not the look i'm going for. tomorrow i plan on using metal foil to add more light.
can i see your bag shots please?
