Being I am a wedding and portrait photographer, why am I posting on Product Photography? Well if you don’t live under a rock or have not been castaway on an Island with Tom Hanks and Wilson, then you know I can not photograph people right now, LOL.I have friends that do product photography full time, I was never really into it though. But I get asked to do some here and there. I am not as good as my friends but I can make some nice images I think.
SO being stuck inside and having so much extra free time, might as well practice! Today is my third day in a row playing with this. I might go back a redo the shoot from day one, as I already learned more on day 3… Day one was Wine and Lysol(had to do the lysol under the circumstances) Day 2 the Jack Daniels. Day three the Woodford Reserve and the watch. I watched like 2 YouTube videos before I jumped right in. I just took what I know about lighting and went right for it. I don’t know what people know about product photography but I knew going in it is harder than you think. Especially glass and reflective surfaces. It takes a long time to get the lighting just right. And styling, that is another aspect to this. Its more than just putting something down on a table and photographing it. What elements can you add to spice it up?
So while I am not an expert, yet, maybe I can help you with your products that you need photographed. Do you have a product that you sell that you would like to highlight? Or any needs for product photography, reach out and maybe we can put something together!
Stay safe, healthy and sane! Corona Quarantine 2020!
