Shooting Ribbon Microphones

Taking pictures of mics can be challenging, made all the worse by highly reflective and shiny surfaces. About the only thing worse than a chrome finish (this is not a chrome finish) is a dull black one. Here is a shot of a shot in the making: The image of the Proscenium that you see in all of our web and print ads was shot in this setup, complete with that reddish highlight running up and down the body. That stripe is an intentional warm accent suggestive of the equally warm sounding Proscenium ribbon microphone. Check out the finished shot here.
