Rich Harrington: All right, we're almost ready to shoot our subject, here. It's a highly reflective subject. Kevin Bradley: Yeah. Rich Harrington: What's going to happen if we don't take the time to dust bust? Kevin Bradley: All the finger prints are going to show up. Rich Harrington: Yeah, we got fingerprints, we've got large spectacles of dust. As we go through here, I want to be careful. This might be an instance to go with actually using some gloves. Or grabbing the surface that's not going to be shown on the camera, gentle strokes and just buff that out. I'm using a laptop cleaning cloth here. There's all sorts of different specialty cloths out there for cleaning a subject.
What you really want to do is try to get rid of the fingerprints and just make sure your reflective surfaces are clean. Canned air sometimes works. Do you have any other tricks? Kevin Bradley: Canned air, one of the little blower brushes that you use in your lens kit that cleans off the dust on the lens. That'll work, too. Sometimes Windex, depending on how sensitive the material you're cleaning is. Sometimes you can use Windex. Rich Harrington: We're not going to spray this guitar with Windex, that would probably annoy the owner of the guitar. But, yeah, make sure you think about what you're doing and before you spray adhesive.
Or a cleaning agent onto a surface. Find a corner to test or try it on a similar material. But I think our subject's looking pretty good and we've got them all set, so when we come back we're going to go ahead and take a look at actually using the macro lens.
