Product photography is another category where you can expand and create new things probably infinitely. But of course, everything requires practice and lots of it. But it’s also great to photograph something useful, so finding friends and colleagues with products that they like to sell was my first idea.
It kind of paid off, while not a lot of work, I still got to test a few tricks and tips of product photography. The first job was to photoshoot bracelets, so we went for bright colors and nice daylighting. The tip here for the next time, do focus stacking and get all of the bracelets in the shot.

What other product is always around the house, hiding in the fridge when you most need it? Of course, it’s beer, a cold-one, or any other Godly name you give it. While having it always ready is fine, another point about beer is that they usually have lots of different bottle designs or color pallets, so you can really experiment with lots of styles.
Ups, how did one photo of coffee get in here? Go, shoush, we don’t need you here, coffee is just for the working week, and it’s always weekend in my blog.
Recently I did a second photo shoot for the same person that makes stone bracelets. The bracelets themselves have improved over time and now were more durable and in my opinion, look much better. This time we had a clear goal, a bright mirrored image with white background. To do is I grabbed my good old mirror and gave it a squicky good cleaning. Then constructed my studio lights and added a big white sheet over one of them to create the large white reflection in the mirror. After a few minutes, okay, maybe 30 minutes of messing around with angles to get everything in place we were ready to shoot. So here are the results…
Hope you liked my product photography progress. There’s still room to improve so stick by for more works. If you want some food photography goodness, click here.
