A glass surface and a low(ish) angle!

Very nice. I can never tell if reflections are done with Photoshop (or the equivalent) these days!

I generally try to avoid using Photoshop and just color correct (and remove blemishes) in Lightroom. Here’s a few similar ones of the Smashing Yoyo Company Mystery Box yoyos I got this morning thanks to @chaosgow

You can get a pretty clean reflection with lighting and the right surface. I haven’t had the need to photoshop a reflection yet.

What’s the trick to getting them to stand on the rim at 45 degrees like that? Remove support in photoshop or something?

Ok. Spent the last hour trying to balance all of my yoyos and all I got is a bunch of dinged up yoyos now. Need more practice I guess.

Only reason I bought this yoyo was to take a picture with a Nagel. So 80’s! Still didn’t have good lighting set up but didn’t feel like buying/building another light box.

Is that Aqua or Teal? I know that Aqua is Gentry’s favorite colorway, but it looks an awful lot like my Teal One Drops…

It’s actually green! They only have three colors available for the bimetal styling: red, blue, and green.
