How to Shoot a Rim Light Product Photo with One Light


Here’s a 12-minute tutorial by AdoramaTV in which photographer Gavin Hoey shows how you can capture a perfect rim light shot without using multiple stripboxes and flashes — all you need is just one light.

In the tutorial, Hoey captures product photos of static glassware items, lighting the photos from different angles with his one light.

Once he has the photos he needs, he loads them into Photoshop and then combines them into a single finished composite photo that’s fully rim lit.

The single monolight used in the tutorial is the $549 Godox AD400 Pro (AKA Flashpoint XPLOR 400PRO TTL).
