Front panel painting tone
« on: September 24, 2020, 07:04:19 AM »
Hi,

Usually, and regarding studio users, a front panel should be painted in Brilliant, matte or satinated?

┬┐what is the most usual finishing?

I think matte or satin finishes are the most common. Brilliant is likely to be too shiny and lead to difficulty in reading the legend.

If it's too shiny / glossy it can also give off a reflective glare,  not a good thing for often dimly lit studios.

Hi!

For the box, the same... with respect to making catalog pictures. I have matte and satin black.
I will test satin on a sheet of metal, to see how it shines...or not.

For catalogue pictures lighting is key. Best to use a diffuse source to prevent glare and never use flash. I have an LED disc with diffuser that sits round the nose of my camera. It has selectable intensity and colour. Less than$20 from China.
