The Product Shoot...

I was recently hired by the Photographer that I am interning with to photograph the products she offers to put them in a catalog. I thought what a great idea, not only will she now have samples but also a picture book with images of the products with a description.

It was challenging, I will admit since she wanted an earthy toned canvas muslin as the background.  When shooting Product I find that white background with studio lighting works best, Well at least I thought.

I had to turn my household Iron on, in order to get the muslin to a well enough state to shoot on, (Canvas can really hold a wrinkle) and ended up shooting with available light.  I must admit I was pleased with the end Result. Photographing Product is not quite as exciting as photographing people, but it has it's own rewards. You have to be a little more creative in certain ways. I mean think about it, you can tell people how to pose but you can't tell a book to hold itself on an angle ;)

Here are a few of my favorites that I'm sure will make it into the Catalog  =)
