The shutterstock photo was clearly (!) made with a real lemon slice inside an acrylic "ice" cube. The process used is the same as that used to encase insects and dried flowers in crystal shapes for novelty trinkets such as key-chains and zipper pulls. After the cube was polymerized, it was polished and buffed to soften the edges and smooth the surfaces. ...

Your lens choice is very specific a 90mm Tilt-shift lens yet your camera and lighting gear choices are much broader: my DSLR body Transportable studio flash gear Did you pick the lens because you recently used it, liked it a lot and now subconsciously want to use it for that task? Is the other equipment just a necessity to use that nice lens ...

In my opinion your answer incomplete. They want all images to represent the products accurately and be shot from slightly above to show dimension. This part is tricky. Is it not photography all about capturing what you have in front of the camera? Let us assume they do want to maintain some proportion, yes probably your lens would help, but the tilt ...

My first thought is that because you are lighting the glass from both the front and the rear, you need some shadow on the edges to add definition. Positioning some black card just out of shot to the rear sides of the should help. I've not tried lighting glass to display the embossing, but I suspect that shadow defining the edges will also show up to help ...

The shot you're trying to emulate has two light banks above & slightly to the front of the jars. There is a big white reflector card propped between the two light banks & just above the camera position. The jars are sitting on translucent white plexiglass that's lit strongly & directly from behind and possibly also from below. And this was all ...

Two things seem apparent to me looking at this setup. First, the position of the subject appears to be a little further from the camera than the lights. Before you fool with the position of any equipment which can take hours to do or : ( re-do, move the subject slightly to and fro. Once you get the optimal contrast in the edges, you could move your lighting ...

Any material that is transparent such as glass, water, booze, Jello™, plastics, (and air bubbles) etc. have two basic lighting methods for display. Dark-line technique which uses a light background to produce dark edges or White-line technique which uses a dark background to produce light edges. The iStock photo uses the dark line lighting technique that ...

I'll assume what you mean by "keep the liquid gel recognizable and clear" is giving good definition to the bubbles while keeping the rest of the gel very transparent (in other words, the well-defined bubbles are what give you a visual indication that there's anything in the bottle at all, since the background is featureless). In your example shot, the ...

A quick google search for "Hand Sanitizer" shows almost entirely product photography done inside a table-top light box. Depending on what sort of "look" you're going for, it's probably what I would recommend, because it looks to be the standard for the industry. As well, the stock photo you linked to has that same appearance. If you look on Youtube for ...

How to improve my product photo shoot to look like Apple's Mac Pro product site? I think there are two important things to keep in mind: The main idea with low-key photography is that you want to underexpose the background so much that the camera reads it as black. It doesn't even matter if the background is black or gray or some other color -- if ...
