Product Photography In Preston Lancashire SetGear are a company based in Penwortham in Preston, creating production equipment engineered for film & TV.

Simple Product Setup Using Two Speedlights So, we are in the middle of Covid-19 lockdown. The kids are running riot, and I’m all out of duct tape.
