DAIWA FREAMS LT
The Freams range of Daiwa reels has been in production for the past 15 plus years and has always been a popular range due to its low cost and high end features. Since the early 2000’s I’ve shot every variation and model of the Daiwa Freams for catalogues and promotion. The new Freams LT series is the latest model from Daiwa that I shot several months ago.
Preparation from the beginning is essential to get the reel looking right. Before the reel gets shot I always give its a really tough clean and polish to remove any dirt, dust, oil, fingerprints etc, this reduces time in Creative Suite dramatically. Less power is used on a reel like this as all the tones are very similar, so 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, 1/32nd power and about half a dozen small Gobos to reflect light in the right areas.
