Hi there,


I've been shooting products for a while and I noticed that no matter how consistent I am with my setup, I end up with mismatches on my white backgrounds, which is super frustrating. See video attached


Here's what I do so far: 

- Manual setup with set ISO

- Fixed white balance set in kelvins

- Spot single point focus 

- Static camera and lights


- Matrix metering -> Might be my issue but not sure exactly how metering works so I'll have to look into that. 


Does anyone of you have experience with this particular issue?


Thank you!!!
