"With the Mr Black products you have glass, a high gloss plastic neck wrap, an uncoated art paper stock, gold foils and UV varnishes. This makes it difficult to light in one go, but with HDR Light Studio it's far easier to do. We used some large softboxes for the main overall lighting, and lots of little hotspot lights to ping off the gold foils and UV varnishes. As the labels have different finishes/positions of these reflective areas we were able to utilise HDR Light Studio 'Composites' so with a few clicks we could output different light maps for the different products, and then use Cinema 4D 'Take' system to easily setup all the different products in 1 file ready to be batch rendered. We also utilised HDR Light Studio area lights to include/exclude objects in the scene so we could further control the influence of the lights. For the flat lay images, we added a Redshift sun to create the caustics. Lastly, for the Bushfire Appeal label, we were able to quickly update the HDR Light Studio's scene by adding in a few extra lights to highlight the additional gold foil and UV varnish areas on the Koala's features."
