Yes, a product shot on white. I think this type of shot is possibly the bane of any photographer’s life. There’s no allowance for creativity, and clients ask for it because they see it on their competitors website. And of course, there’s the fact that a number of the large e-commerce sites demand white backgrounds. We could do so much more for the product, if only we were given the opportunity. Which reminds me, I’ve had such an opportunity just lately, and will follow up with a blog showing a comparison “on white” and a more creative setup.
The above image is a composite of four images, suggested by my assistant Wayne. The original portraits were to be full length, in an environment conducive to an era when a string quartet would have been very much at home.
I’ve often said all my photography is client driven. From food to vehicles, roomsets to fashion, products to bridal brochures, it was always to realise someone else’s vision. Which is great.
This shoot was arranged to benefit Rebecca, our model, and also Keli, the rather unassuming and very talented makeup artist.
The final day at the World Food Championships was the big one. All category winners were going head to head with the aim of being crowned WFC World Champion 2016, and taking home the $100,000 prize.
