Carlton Draft Tank Beer copper installations were photographed in Brisbane and the Gold Coast by Stefan Postles for product photography purposes. These interior shots required creative lighting techniques to control reflections on the copper finish. Product photography of highly reflective surfaces is a specialised skill and doing it in a large space where the ambience is to be retained requires skills from an architecture background as well as a studio lighting background. As the bars were functioning venues the photography session had to be done during daylight hours but the client’s brief called for the images to retain the look and feel of the bar at night. This was something that had to be overcome with lighting techniques to create the desired effect.
