Photographer Dustin Dolby has a cracking YouTube channel to help those who want to learn how to shoot product shots with speedlights and his latest tutorial, published a few days ago, is all about photographing multiple products in one frame. 

In the short but really useful tutorial, Dustin shows you how to light a scene with one speedlight before moving onto photo editing where he shares the secrets of the lighten blending mode. 

"Lighten mode is a great way to learn how to photograph products with one speedlight," says Dustin. "By lightening the underlying layer, we can use it to quickly composite multiple exposures together to craft a stylised lighting style. This lighting technique also reveals to us the utility of each layer in the final composition."

Once you've hit 'play' and watched the tutorial, have a look at Dustin's previous product photography tutorials which focus on creating a pure white catalogue look and shaping light
