Ask Yourself This

Ask yourself this.. When you look through LinkedIn for new professional connections. What the first thing you look at?

The answer in many cases if not all, will be the profile image. The image you see will make you in that split second click next or take the opportunity to look at the persons profile.

“By looking at a face for less than a second, we can judge someone’s age, gender, race, emotional state, and even their trustworthiness,” You may be under the impression that it takes weeks of getting to know someone before you can trust them, but your brain has already done the job of decoding their personality within the first second of meeting them face-to-face.

Product Photography Lighting A Gin Bottle

Your Image Is Everything

Back in the studio today shooting this bottle of Tanqueray Gin, which just happens to be my favourite.

I thought I would show you some of the behind the scenes shots to give you a visual explanation of how I put this and many other shots together. As with all of my product shots I will build up the set bit by bit, shooting test shots as I go.

This is the first shot out of camera, the aim is to get the first light set up. In this case the light on the background. I use the black foam board either side to create definition and the black edge to the bottle.

I didn’t want a plain white background on this shot, I wanted something a little more dynamic, so to create the green I just added green tissue paper over the strobe on the background. (Don’t do this…
