lastly , one should consider ( in our running discussions of whistle pictures )
We like to use and hope we have created a signature of blue background on all of our pictures.
However there is a drawback and that is that whistles that are shiny reflect that color !!! Something we choose to live with, to set our pix apart.
The best seems to be an off-white for generic pictures.
However you can get innovative !!
Try this >>>>> elevate your whistle onto a sheet of glass and support it so that you can't see the supports by spreading them out. Now you can take close ups which affects the depth of field and makes your whistle seem to float !!!
Two or more sources of light really help knock out those pesky shadows, so you will really want to work with this from whatever location you have…
