Do any of you ladies and gents have any suggestions for photographing metallic paints?
A number of my cards now feature metallics but I am finding it pretty much impossible to take a picture that shows what they look like!
An overcast day is great for product shots and getting the overall colour right, but the sparkles are only highlighted in bright sunshine and even then my camera doesn’t pick it up properly!
I’m using a Fujifilm x30 which does great macro which I use mostly as I can connect it to my tablet and download photos to edit and list items instead of waiting until the evening for my husband to get off the laptop. I do have a canon Eos 1200d, do you think it would be better with that? It’s overcast so I can’t try it in sunlight right now! Although perhaps if I went and found a torch…!
Any thoughts are gratefully received!
