Here we are in 2016. Already a new year. Honestly, I can breathe a sigh of relief now that we’re crossed over into 2016, and left the holidays behind. Not that I don’t enjoy them, but it just gets so crazy busy.
Last year as a commercial product photographer, we were very busy and getting all our photography finished was hectic. It was the last minute things that get cha. So, next year I will start way earlier so I feel a bit freer. Oh yeah, that’s going to happen.
My sister and I working in the commercial photography field for well past 25 years (That’s enough information on that subject), are so excited about all the new photo editing tools, cameras and digital backs. We just purchased a new, yes a new Hasselblad CFV 50 back. The color is amazing, the software and the support. We cannot be happier. A learning curve? Yes, but nothing like when we first jumped into digital.
Photographing products in our New Jersey based studio is fantastic because it’s always something new everyday. Meeting new clients from NJ and NYC to work with and create with. Is it the same thing? Maybe, but there is work and then there is creating. Product photography of for instance the bowls above, was a challenge. But, when I say a challenge I do not mean it in a work related way, but as a creative challenge. To balance the bowls mostly, but to arrange them in a relative way to one another and to light them to show off the pieces. After all, it’s the product that’s the hero here.
