Photographing metal can be so difficult and draining but yet so rewarding once you get the right angles, reflections and tones.
We're coming out with these awesome metal stamping pewter border shapes at my job that you can customize with your own border design stamps. I really enjoyed portraying with these great designed projects by Sarah.
We had some bottles as props, a backlight with a mirror as a reflector, a vintage Canon FD mount macro lens with a FD to EF mount adapter and our Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera. With this particular FD lens and to use the liveview feature I had to overexpose by a few seconds in order to get a well lit representation in the camera's screen. Once I had my focus right I made the shutter speed faster until the indicator arrow was around the middle.
