Some time ago, I finished a tutorial by one of the product photography masters, a student of famous Igor Sakharov. Just like in any studying, in photography, all the theoretical knowledge should obligatorily be consolidated in practice. Otherwise, all the learning time would be spent in vain. And I decided to start my practical training from my old familiar – jezveler which I photographed for the first time almost four years ago in order to pass the Shutterstock exam. Here’s that photo:
And here’s the result I got using new way mentioned above:
Agree, the difference is significant! My cousin seeing these images even didn’t believe that this is the same object on both photographs. 🙂
I should say that this method of photo shooting is much more complex, time and labor-consuming. I even decided to capture the process by my smartphone:
One of my mates seeing this photo said: “You’ll soon need to buy a van to bring it all!” 🙂
Nevertheless, the most important thing for me is that the result is much better as well. So, now I can say that I shifted my product photography skills up to the next level!
