Another of my friend's guitars, his only 12-string guitar. The letters "c" and "e" in the model name, Taylor 355ce, indicate that the body is a cutaway style and that the guitar has onboard electronics, respectively.

A medium continuous-light lamp fitted with a diffusion sock was in the left front area as far away from the subject as possible. A small continuous-light lamp on the right was shining upward toward a large white reflector above the subject. The reflector brightly lit the headstock. A white reflector on the left brightened the width of the body.

A medium continuous-light lamp fitted with a diffusion sock in the right front area lit the overall scene. A small one in the left front area lit the bridge. A flashlight lit the side of the guitar.

Photo #3

A small continuous-light lamp on the left very close to the subject at the level of the strings brightly lit the part of them that passes over the hole. A medium continuous-light lamp higher was than the scene on the right. Both lamps were fitted with a diffusion sock.

Photo #4
A medium continuous-light lamp on the right lit the overall scene and a small one on the left brightened the black areas to display their shapes. Both lamps were fitted with a diffusion sock.

Photo #5
The background is black foam core. A medium continuous-light lamp was on the right and a small one was on the left. Both lamps were fitted with a diffusion sock.

Photo #6
The background is black velvet. White reflectors that brightly lit the tuning knobs were above and on both sides of the subject. A small continuous-light lamp was immediately above the camera pointing mostly upward toward the upper reflector.
