Product shot

So this was my third photo project, and my aim was to produce a photo that advertised and promoted the appeal of our chosen product. My product was a pair of Ipath boots. Before I framed my photo, I went on the Ipath web site and really studied how they presented themselves. They seem to try to appeal to the Rasta and Hemp culture, and with that in mind I then set up my shot. I was very pleased with the final result, and even went as far as to throw in a little Photoshop work to really polish the shot. As far as challenges, I really battled with the lighting and how I would best use it to make a shoe look sexy. The final result was a  key light that functioned as a spot light of sorts, with a strategically placed key light to soften some of the harsh shadows that were cast on parts of the shoes. I chose to shoot the shoe at an unusual angle to make it look edgy and to give it some youth. If you would like to see the inspiration for my decisions, you can check out the Ipath wed site at the attached link. http://www.ipath.com Ipath

IMG_9020 This was our fear shot, it was by far my favorite because I think we really captured the intended emotion with not only the lighting, but also the pose. The guy in the photo is a jokester named Rob Hackett who really just ran with the project. (thanks Rob). As far as the biggest challenge we faced, the camera we rented was broken when we took it out of the box, so we had to improvise and use another camera that we really weren’t as familiar with. Other than that we Rocked this project!

I found this assignment to be much more difficult then I originally expected. It was hard to find people doing interesting things in interesting places with an interesting appearance. Then when I did find said people it was very time consuming to adjust my camera, and some times these adjustments would cause me to lose the shot. Regardless i feel like a did a good job with the task at hand and learned  a lot in the process. This Picture was my favorite because of the colors.

Feather Boy

Cam is a sexy man god. He holds the feather with such authority, and yet there is a tenderness in his eyes that say…”love me?”

In all seriousness, this was a photo with a shallow depth of field. I believe the reason for the green hue was that we failed to re white balance the shot. despite that fact i think the photo still looks cool. IMG_0509
