View Full Version : Gillete Studio Work
November 9th, 2004, 05:38 PM
My first "studio" work. I bought a small soft box to have better lighting of my subjects. I have tryed a lot of shoots at this razor and this came out (also Photoshop used :)
what do u think? is any of these a good picture to sell that object?
PS: I know it won't sell because it was used before :) but consider it new... would you buy it? lol

the second one is great. the third ones cool too, but you'd maybe want it more for something like a poster on "the dangers of shaving" or soemthing like that. it sort of has that reflective thought felling about it because it is slightly artistic. I'd probably keep away from photoshop if your selling a product because people want to see the real thing (i am aware that you arent actually selling it btw.)
but yeh, the second one wins in my opnion, i like the focal point and well just everything about it. i like the fact that you can still read "mach 3" on the handle aswell, even though it is blurred.
nice stuff man, keep it up ;)

First and foremost, clean all of the dust and stuff off of the razor. A clean image is key in product photography. Also try to avoid slapping canned filters onto images. My favorite has to be the image with the strong backlighting and the blue tint.

thanks for your advice. maybe you didn't notice my PS on the first post :) (PS: I know it won't sell because it was used before but consider it new... would you buy it? lol )
So i knew I need a new product, but it was that I have tried with lights, positions, point of view... so my questions are related to this, not to the quality of the product :).
I am planing to do more "studio" work with some women make-ups .. let's see what is going to get out of the camera
thanks again for your time. Pls can you tell me what is "caned filters" ?

canned filters are default photoshop filters, always better to try to accomplish something w/o PS filters first :teeth:
