In this case, he’s sharing his workflow for shooting reflective products, which can be especially tricky. “Reflective products in general present a unique obstacle, and with cutlery you can make use of a convenient approach. By extrapolating the angle our camera looks at our subject, we can place a corresponding light behind our scene,” explains Dolby. “This will flatter both a reflective subject and surface simultaneously creating a convenient angle to capture reflective product photography like knives forks and spoons and silverware.” And this is the result he’s able to achieve by stacking just two images together—one lit from above, another from the side to provide a highlight and give the cutlery depth: The tutorial comes at the perfect time, when many photographers are...

Just like selecting good and undervalued stocks on a regular basis is one of the keys to investing success, identifying and proactively getting rid of toxic stocks is also crucial to maximizing portfolio returns.

The price of these stocks is artificially inflated. Irrational exuberance associated with a stock may lead to overpricing. Owning such stocks for an inordinate period could lead to erosion of wealth for an investor.
