Ready for their closeup!
We are busy getting new product photos ready to show off the new labels. Photographing shiny bottles is never an easy task outside of a studio. The bottles are not only beautiful...but reflect everything they see (including the photographer).
I do not have a studio to use so I had to get creative and use natural light outdoors.
To avoid harsh shadows from direct sunlight I used a soft box. This is my first time using one of these and it worked really well. I moved the table around as the sun moved and also to get the desired highlights I was looking for. You can get an idea where the sun was by the shadow on the table. Experimenting with time of day is also a great idea!
If you are curious...my camera is sitting on a box. When your tripod is broken it is time to get creative!
With the growth of websites like Etsy and Pinterest there is a wealth of creative product photography information out there. I am looking forward to doing more stylized shoots in the future. Enjoy the new photos!
