DAIWA BG MQ 6000D
Since the late 1990’s I’ve shot every variation and model of the Daiwa BG for catalogues and promotion. The new BG MQ series is the latest model from Daiwa that I shot several months ago. The reel in the image was one of the first cosmetic samples and as usual with these early samples they can be a bit rough in appearance as they are often hand made. First off with any reel like this is a tough clean and polish to remove any dirt, dust, oil, fingerprints etc. then light is up. A three-light setup with the main light a Godox AD600 Pro with a 50cm Beauty Dish from front above, ¼ power, two Godox AD 300 Pro’s from either side at 45 degrees, 1/16th power and about half a dozen small Gobos to reflect light in the right areas.
After many hours in Photoshop, fixing up scratches, pain chips, metal dents, logos etc the final result is a production perfect looking reel.
