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.
