In product photography, space is always at a premium. I tend to photograph products stripped of all non-essentials, as in these examples of vintage radios from my books. Lighting is carefully controlled. My philosophy is that when viewed “live” one can turn objects from side to side to illuminate the dark recesses and minimize glare. The reader can’t do that, but through careful retouching I attempt to provide that experience even while limited to a single view. 

Vintage Crown TR-3A two-transistor radio. Six transistor models were also produced in this same cabinet by Crown as the Olympic 777 and the Midge BR-760. From the book 'Great Little Radios From Crown' here: http://www.collectornet.net/books/transistor/

Vintage Zephyr AR-630 transistor radio. Beautiful asymetric styling and an underpainted dial panel make this six-transistor one of the most beautiful transistor radios ever made. Made by Aiwa in Japan, circa 1959. From the book 'Great Little Radios From Global & Zephyr' here: http://www.collectornet.net/books/transistor/


Vintage Zephyr TR-64 transistor radio made by Constant (Fuji High Frequency Radio Laboratory) in Japan, circa 1958. From the book 'Great Little Radios From Global & Zephyr' here: http://www.collectornet.net/books/transistor/
