You were hired by an advertisement agency to photograph a product for a company to sell. The requirement is for a product to be displayed on a white background to show details.

I know we all have seen those, very common in stock photography. Along with your shot, i would like to hear what your set up was, and how you achieved your shot.




EX:

or



Good Luck!



Your pictures should be fresh, and they should convey the topic. Please keep your shots no more then 600px on the longest side. Please ask for help in resizing your picture by DM or on another thread.

Rules are simple:
  • Stay on topic
  • Be creative
  • Mild Editing allowed (no removing, adding objects to the shot)
  • Give and receive feed back and be nice
  • HAVE FUN!

Hot Wheels Motorcycle. I opened a pad of watercolor paper and set it on my computer desk top. Turned a desk lamp from the side of the pad. Set the motorcycle in the middle of the opened pad and used a flash. Shot six photos and choose the sharpest.

Katie, if you had anything special to do to get the shot, that's what i meant. For example, i had to set up a white background, and have 2 lights to properly expose the product. While second shot of mine isn't quiet white, my first one appears to be more like it.

Glass bead bracelet made by a friend of mine. (She not only made the bracelet, she made the beads themselves.) Shot on a white dinner plate, lighting provided by pendant lights hanging over my kitchen island.

Canon Digital Rebel, 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, mounted on tripod. 13-second exposure at f/32. No flash.
