I want to take picture of smoking pipe. So I switch my workshop into photoatelier.
Working apron creates black backgroung. Apron hangs on wood planks.
I put a can on my planing machine and on the top the vise is sitting. There is a wire in the vise, on which The mouthpiece of the piepe is set up on the wire, which is kept in the vise. The pipe in about 1 meter in front of the background.
Using quick clamp is the "lightbar" fastened to the table of circular saw. Lights are 60 cm before the pipe. Lights are directed obliquely down to put light only on the pipe, not on the background. As the light source i used two 40W bulbs.
Camera is situated 1 meter before the pipe. It is on the tripod. I used the largest zoom. Time was about 5 seconds. Also it is necessary to set white-balance to the bulb light.
Using this technique i take the pictures of my last created pipe:
The shape of this pipe is ispirated by Porsche design.
There is skew ring in the mouthpiece.
Dimensions: length - 160mm; bowl diameter - 40mm; weight - 52 grams
