I was doing some shooting in studio yesterday experimenting with different lighting setups for product images. When I’m testing stuff in studio, I generally look around for something handy to use. In this case, my Galileo Thermometer worked well.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes shot of the setup I used for the shot.
