So I've been asked to do some 360' product images of brass instruments. Some of these instruments are big and I mean big. A Tuba is around 100cm high and almost that again wide and needs a support in order to stand up. Client would like to have images of said instrument without stand and without the stand reflected in the product.
OK so I could photograph the product being supported, remove the stand and reflections in PS - would probably look unnatural but then how would I rotate the instrument?
I also need to shoot for an product video , Before I embark on an adventure in building some kind of customisable wooden rotating rig to support different instruments and allow them to rotate freely, I hoped some wise photographers with more experience than myself may be able to offer some sage advice.
Please help me out.
Any help will be appreciated.
