New product photography in the studio. Here's the approach:
Helmet is hung from the ceiling with rope and black thread.
Swivel chair-mounted coffee table for reflection.
2 softboxes on the helmet to show off the contour.
One light on a black paper background.
One flash directly into helmet to light up the inner liner.
And the final result with two images combined:
This one is similar but the shoes are lightly fastened to a rock.
