Latex is notoriously difficult to photograph. It’s a very shiny material and under the right lighting it yields very reflective highlights.
Left to right we have:
1. Close lighting to the left; incandescent and one LED tuneable light set to cool white. Lighting straight in front – one incandescent spotlight about 10ft away.
2. Same as the first, but this time with the “house lights” on. These are fluorescent lights.
3. House lights and the 10ft incandescent spot only.
4. House lights only
As you can see the lighting really charges, particularly between the left two and right two photos. The specular highlights on the first two are really hot on the light levels.
