Thread: Fake beamshots in product photos?

    Default Fake beamshots in product photos?

    Sorry, I just don't believe that there this deep gorge -- with a convenient outcrop (accessible to a person) and some other vantage point for the photographer -- exists:

    Doesn't seem that unusual for canyon-y areas. You could always try sending them an email and asking where it is, but I see no reason to call anyone's honesty in to question.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    Honestly it’s probably fake. There’s way to much foliage on that cliff. But my point is why fake it when there are places for real that would work
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

    Beam may be true, too much work in photo editor to overlay the beam image on the cliff photo. Human figure - photo editor. Here are a couple of real photos, a tripod was used here. Perhaps a photo tripod is behind the human picture. Nothing to worry about.

    It's a 12 THOUSAND lumen flashlight folks. It has a big @$$ front end. C'mon…… lighten up.
    (pun intended)

    In the 1960's Streamlight was tasked with building a flashlight that could mimic the sun with a light bulb. My 1950's Dog Supply House 7D can shine two football fields away bright enough to ID a dark colored cat. So here in 2019, it seems very likely that Fenix could devise a flashlight that the beam pix show.

    Yup, a drone was likely used to snap the photo(s).

    Not the beam, the setting strikes me as fantasy.
