DAIWA TD BLACK LTD BAITCASTER
Fishing rods are one of the hardest items I do to get perfect. The combination of a slim tubular items with multiple colours, metals, cork or eva etc make it challenging. I began shooting them during film days before digital, my setup still remains the same… a fully custom made Lightbox. The new TD series was a bit more challenging with the combination of matt black paint , chrome silver, cork and polished black metal making exposure/lighting a bit more different. Black needed to be black and the chrome needed to show its metallic surface and texture without blowing any highlights.
