The way I photographed the first image is by attaching a soft box in one of the lights. Using a soft box reduced the amount of shadows in the image. In the second image, I placed the subject on top of a reflective sheet to produce a ‘mirrored look’. I’ve also attached blu tack underneath my AirPods case to make it stand up. Overall I liked the second image because the white colors from the Airpods stand out to the black background.
