To realize my client's vision for a product photo of cedar cooking planks, I had to figure out a way to shoot both wood and highly reflective packaging in one frame. If I had just photographed the packaging, a buyer would not have been able to see the actual product contained within. It was thus important to take one of the cedar cooking planks out and put it in front so web site visitors could easily see what they were buying. While the packages look wet, the droplets are actually a printed design. However, this brand of cedar cooking planks are actually wet inside the package, so I did have to dry off the plank a bit to minimize reflections from the damp wood.
