Hi guys,
is there a guide or preset or something else to perform a perfect still life studio lighting setup? I mean what kind of light, position, intensity and color, camera?

Thanks

Hi Giuseppe,

We don’t have a guide yet.

Most of the times we use 3 spotlights, 2 in front at about 45 degrees opposite of each other and 1 in back.
This will get you an evenly lit object, and then depending on the size of the objects all intensity values, including the hemisphere light, should be around 0,4. The colour can stay white or a little bit yellow if you want a warmer look.

For the camera, you only need to find an angle that works for you and put the focal point at the centre of the object.

Hope this helps in the meantime.
