Photographing really shiny things

When a manufacturer has taken the time to create their product and make it really shiny, you can’t just cover it with a matt spray and pretend that it doesn’t really look shiny! In fact, you need to ensure that the product shines and stands out from the crowd. Chrome is an absolute pain to photograph, especially if it is curved, as it will reflect everything around it – including the photographer and camera.

Watch the video of how I photographed some kitchen filters, finished entirely in chrome, to make them shine in the kitchens.
