Liam Doran: Trying His Hand at Product Photography

This just goes to show what you can achieve when you shoot with good equipment.

Pro Showcase photographer Liam Doran doesn't spend a ton of time shooting products in the studio - he's made a name for himself as a first-rate outdoor sports and lifestyle photographer - but that doesn't mean he can't switch gears when he has to.

"In today's ultra-competitive market, you never want to turn work down. I think it's crucial to be at least literate in all aspects of photography so that when 'atypical' work does come your way, you're prepared to deliver high quality results."

Recently, Doran shot some photos for the cover of an upcoming gear guide for Elevation Outdoors Magazine and used his Photoflex 5 foot OctoDome with Grids attached as his key light.  " I am certainly not the ultimate studio product shooter, but I think these came out pretty well."

We think so too. Nice work, Liam!

Here's how the cover turned out!

Here's more info on the Photoflex Medium OctoDome and Grids.
