I am selecting a candle look book for my final. Since I make candles, I thought it would be a good idea to make one for my business to display when selling in person or to send to stores that might be interested. I like all the ideas above since they appeal interesting, clean, and simple.

This project research gave me an idea of how you can shoot a camera. It does not have to be against a plain background. I love that the use props to fill the frame. The way they include the film to add accents to the photograph is something I will mimic in my Zine. Other than the picture in of the SX-70 it seems like it is all natural soft lighting. Composition is very important, the background elements cannot be distracting if the picture is to work.

I enjoy how these photographers pulled all the attention to the product. They used methods that inspired me to use on my images. Using complete white or blank background to show off the product or a detailed background the product is always the apparent focus. All images focus on the detail of the product which makes the product look appealing and i want that in my mouth. My goal is to make my images do the same to the person viewing.



I like vuhlandes style because he knows how to frame well and pose his models well. The scenery he chooses for his street pictures are really well also not too distracting or anything straight to his point. His light is also on point and shows that he uses soft light along with neutral light for his street shots.

Van Styles type of editing and shooting is totally different from vuhlandes. Van Styles shows the various editing can fit almost any picture. He also knows how to pose and frame his model where he wants to and his angles are really well. He knows what to capture at the right time.

13th witness is more of a street photographer and uses natural lighting for all of his images. He also knows how to pose and angle and frame his models to where its not too much distraction but still shows his point.
