I dont rate HM very much at all but i must say they did a stellar job on your guitar, it looks very authentic to a burst.
This photo is brilliant, how did you set-up the lighting so the colour and detail come through so well?
I'll have to try and see if I can create something similar, I always find I get reflection in glossier areas if there's any direct daylight, that or I end up creating shadow by accidentally positioning myself in-between the guitar and light source.Thx.
That's a combination of light. The reflection by the knobs is coming from windows that are just off to the side, while the light on the arm-rest area is coming from an overhead light in the room. Then I moved around and around and around until I got the camera in the right spot.
The flame is being mostly being activated by the window. The overhead light is just doing that spotlight.
