The Christmas hamper

September 11, 2021  •  Leave a Comment


 

It's great when clients send you the products that they want to be photographed mainly because you get to use your home studio and therefore you can really tailor the light and scene. They also rarely ask for the products back, and in this case, it suited me very nicely to "hang on" to these products. (I ate them all 😜😂). This is one picture of a series of images that I created for this particular company. They wanted a stock of images showcasing the hampers that they were selling for this coming Christmas season. One of the most important things to consider when photographing items like these is arranging the levels to enable a showcase of each individual piece. It's always best to take your time to create an even balance across the scene. Too many wine bottles on the left and the image look heavy on that side. Too many items at the front and it can tend to look very cluttered so having the freedom to photograph in your own studio really allows you to hone the finer details and capture a very well balanced image.

Architecture photography

Ah Dublin, you're beautiful! Along with photographing food I also get hired to photograph architecture around Dublin. While this type of work is less frequent, I absolutely love when I get it. Finding compositions and waiting for the light is something I crave when out "working the scene". I am so happy with how this image turned out and so was the client, so a win-win. One must keep in mind, when out on assignment, is the brief. In this case, I was asked to make sure there would be enough negative space to include text. It was left to my discretion as to where this space would be in the image and I opted to place it at the bottom 😃

Pink coffee?!?! Who has ever seen such a thing?!? 🤣 This lovely cup of pink coffee made for a fantastic photographic subject. Wanting to showcase it in all its glory I knew photographing it alone and isolated would make for a much stronger image. The carefully crafted cup is fantastically and lovingly put together by the staff. I never did get to taste it but next time I'll be sure to give it a try. Accentuating the pink in post-production against the marble top really helps make this image pop. There is a lovely big window next to these tables so I didn't have to add any artificial light. The soft light falling in through the window made for some fantastic contrast of highlights and shadows.
