My little product photography setup (how a terrible photographer manages the task)

We are all students of life.  Often times our horizons expand, forcing us to learn new things in order to accomplish another thing.  Such is the case with me and photography.

I have always been a terrible photographer.  Even with “no-shake” technology built into cameras, I still manage to get blurry pictures.   Cameras and I have never gotten along! Continue reading “My little product photography setup (how a terrible photographer manages the task)”

More progress and some revisits

It was my husband’s birthday this weekend.  As such, I didn’t get as much done as I do most weekends, but it is also important to spend time with those that you love.  Luckily, my husband is an artist and during some of the time he spent with me, we worked together on photographing my products.  🙂 Continue reading “More progress and some revisits”

Which shots have the most impact? Will you help me decide?

I took some photos today of my soaps.  Now that this batch is cured, I got the opportunity to clean them up and get better pictures of them.

Product Development

I had a busy weekend working on developing some new bath products.  It was a mixed bag. Some turned out great the first time, while others needed a few tries to get them right.  Others are still under revision and will require a trip back to the drawing board.

 

I managed to stain one mold, break another, and take a zillion cruddy pictures as I am working out my workspace lighting. Continue reading “Product Development”

Having Too Much Fun Learning Photography

I spent this weekend getting acquainted with my new camera, so I didn’t get any soap made, but I had a lot of fun anyway.

I just thought I would share a few of the snapshots I took today.  Not all of them are winners, but still, I think it’s pretty good for a newbie. Continue reading “Having Too Much Fun Learning Photography”
