Keeping to the new normal (i.e. staying close to home) and carrying my Thornton Pickard half-plate camera and a dark slide loaded with 15 year-old (at least) Ilford Multigrade fibre paper for negative material...
Not remarkable photography by any means (X-T2 + 100-400/4.5-5.6 @ 400mm + 1.4x TC, around 1/125-250 sec @ 800 ISO, OIS, hand-held - kinda pushing the envelope for the little beast here), but when I spotted this group in a dead tree in the paddock behind my back gate I had to grab what I could and photograph them.
In the first part of this tutorial I showed you how I typically set up for product photos. In this second part I am going to show you how I do my editing using Lightroom exclusively to create an image with a pure white background that can be used on e-commerce websites.
