Product photography is one of my favorite things to do. I so enjoy taking a product and making it so compelling to the customer that they just have to buy it. Especially if it is a product I too enjoy and believe in.
So it is with www.najatea.com. I did a shoot earlier this year for the ever lovely Naja and she was able to use several images in her marketing efforts. This week she was in New York City to meet with British Airways and tend to her installation there. Naja Tea is the official tea of BA! She was setting things up in their lounge at JFK. And posted this pic on Facebook so all her friends could see, including me!
How awesome is that? I'm really happy for her success, and that I can play a tiny role in it. And having my work out for thousands of people to see is a real thrill. Looking forward to my next cup of Naja Tea and especially our next shoot!
Product photography refers to taking a company's products, and creating images for various purposes, usually marketing/sales. This is a photographic area I enjoy a great deal.
An extended family member owns and is the designer of Ubuntu Jewelry. Check out her beautiful website www.ubuntujewelry.com. I have done a little shooting for her, and thought I'd share a couple of images.
The designs to me speak of the earth and its elements. Rustic. They need to belong in nature, not on a piece of glass or something. I shot the image above last fall (obviously!). Went out into afternoon light, and I hung the necklace in a tree. I wanted a very small depth of field, thus the wide open f-stop, look what it does to the shutter speed!
