See what is takes to take an image of this glossy chrome kettle, using only household LED and DIY diffusers. And yes, the camera.

BTW, do you think that using medium format camera makes any difference on this shot? What about getting the same result with $400 entry level DSLR with a kit lens, are you up to this challenge? 🙂

  1. The light unit providing the spot on the background – Is that a monolight with an L.E.D bulb screwed in instead of the normal modelling light bulb. If so, does the dimming function on the monolight work with this the L.E.D bulb?

  2. amazing work! I worked on something very similar for hours and still didn't get it right, could you please explain how you didn't get a reflection of the camera on the pot?
    and how you controled the full reflection of the pot?
