The health-care industry relating to advertising photography, is very interesting to us as photographers. Hiring and working with professional hand models is a very common thing. So many pieces of the image need to be in place before having the model come onto the set. For the most part we can use a ‘stand in’, which helps with the actual shooting time with the model. Lighting ahead of time for the product is a good way to get the more technical lighting finished, and then once the model is on set, we can adjust from there.
All our experiences with hand models have been good. They are of course as you would expect, very professional. Medical photography in our studio is a very controlled set up. Lighting pharmaceutical products needs to be extremely clean and precise.
One of the best parts of photographing medical and pharmaceutical products is the collaboration that goes into each image. Especially, when using a model, either hand or full body. I know it looks easy, but not so much when there are several different components to light, and capture in perfect balance. But, it can be done and is here as in these two images.
