By Jules Ebe on April 19th 2013

Check out the Behind the Scenes video and tutorial with commercial photographer Jay P. Morgan as he goes on location in downtown Los Angeles to shoot a promotional print ad for Pilot Freight Services.

“Shooting chrome is a reflection process. You want to reflect a nice white surface into the chrome and then light that surface. It’s very similar to a mirror and is easier to light with a reflection of a white surface than to shine light onto the chrome surface itself.” ~ Jay P. Morgan
