Shooting fire with Wick & Tallow.

We recently had a great company called Wick & Tallow in the studio. Sumptuous candles in glorious packaging was an enjoyable challenge for us to shoot.

During the shoot we used every manner of diffuser and lighting source we have to cut down reflection and deliver the best representation of product possible. It was fun and more importantly extremely successful

Great fun, great product and keen to see you back soon
