Industrial photography can be difficult. Normally, you’re photographing in a large warehouse environment, which makes it almost impossible to light. You need to be highly skilled at lighting... I am highly skilled at lighting!
I have a few clients who design and manufacture pharmaceutical and food packaging machinery, all made from stainless steel. With stainless steel, everything around it shows up on it; they’re like giant mirrors. I work with lights and angles to battle the mirrors and I get the best quality image possible. Over the years I’ve learned that when it comes to industrial photography, planning the shot is crucial because sometimes you
can’t retake them.
