All these photographers have various styles that i will try to utilize in my table top photography. Igor Ferreiral uses strobes to highlight his product as well as spotlight, this is the same technique that i will use for my table top photography. As for Yane she uses the color to arrange her composition that add correlation to her products. Suzanne uses simple close up and depth of field to highlight her product and lastly donnie uses location and natural light to highlight his subject. I will take some of these styles and implement them into my tabletop project.
For each individual picture there is a distinct neutral color palette with one or two pops of color. That is the type of thing that draws my attention and makes me look at the rest of the photograph. The extra pop is an element that I will bring to my table top project! The use of color separation with lines helps maintain a minimalistic and clean look to the photo. Unexpected props are also used such was fruits with geometric shapes and different surfaces such as granite create more interest in a table top photo.
Something that I observed in all of the photographs that I selected was the soft lighting. Most of the photographs utilized soft lighting. In the images there was very few pictures that hard shadows. I loved the reflective base Sam Kaplin used in some of his photographs. My favorite image is the one with the beers. I loved how the beers were backlighted, the bottles were properly illuminated further highlighting the product. I also really liked the Stella Artois image the water/ fluid was frozen in the light.
What I like about Alex’s photos is how he uses dar backgrounds to make the colors a little more vibrant . The creativity on his pictures are also good I like how he uses the smoke on the whiskey and the perfume as well the two splashes. What caught my eye on Richard’s photos is the shapes he uses in his photos for example the white shapes make the blue cologne pop and I also like the way he lights up the background . I personally like the reflective shadow , it makes the photo pop and without the picture would be too plain. I also like what he does with the watches , how he highlights a part of the watch on the left corner . I think thats a really good use of the negative space . For Travis’s pics I really like the monochrome pallet he uses on the pictures . I also like he uses various shapes in the picture as a background. I plan on using the soft lighting that most of these pictures have , as well as taking advantage of the negative in pics just like Richard .
Marcel Christ is one of my favorite photographers while researching. not going to lie his shot are definitely very still life. i know I’m not going to take the same photos as him but i would definitely use some of his ideas on my shoot for still life. his images are very put out and at the same time very creative as well.
The reason why I chose Michael Jones images is because this is something i would definitely use as my simple product project. the pictures are very put out very and very simple. Doesn’t mean his pictures are not good I’m simply saying these images are simple as in very well taken and straight to the point of the simple product.
J Palsa (creative product) I chose these images not only because they are well taken and put out is just that they are very creative and artistic. to me they are very creative product shots and something i would love to use as ideas for the shoot for creative product.
What many of these photographers incorporated into their product images was an attention to detail. Adding condensation to a bottled beverage, incorporating rocks to the background of the fossil watch, and adding water droplets to compliment shaving products makes an image much more interesting and eye catching. I also liked the use of soft lighting and soft color palettes to highlight beauty products. For still life imagery, I found images with harsh, minimal lighting to be much more interesting. I think I would like to experiment with this kind of lighting for my still life shoot and I would need to pay attention to the textures I choose for these images as well. I also like the idea of shooting in pastels, soft lighting and backgrounds other than solid colors.
I choose Marcel Christ because I like that his still life pictures are objects in motion. I believe that taking these pictures it might bit hard; however, I would like to experiment this technique in my still life pictures. I kind of have an idea of how to do it, but looking at his pictures he made me want to try that style. On the other hand, I like Sam Kaplan still life pictures because she shows me that anything can be still life photography. I am no sure what are going to use for my pictures; however, Kaplan gave me an idea of the objects I can use. Also, I like that Kaplan uses really strong background so the object stand out. I would not think that with bills one can create an outstanding still picture. Moreover, what I like about Martin Zalba still pictures is the lighting. For my lighting, it is not my stronger thing, so looking at his pictures he gives me a sense of how I can light up my object. I like that the subject is getting the main light, but the background is a bit dark. Finally, Bas Meeuws captured my attention because I like his technique of using flowers for his still pictures. I am not really interested in doing still pictures of flowers; however, I like the details on his pictures. I believe he has a strong composition on his pictures such as the lighting, the background and the colors.
I like the still life photographs because they look like paintings from far away. The bases of the flowers are fill with ingredients. The first photo with the cooffee it contrast the middle of the flowers. I really like the simple product because it gives you the feeling of buying it. I like the one with the lipstick with the cherry it shows the flavor. I like high heels because one is red and the other one is blue. I like the watch because it pops out with the colorful background.
I like these images because of the compositions, the color, and the light drew my eye to the photos. Some of the photos just simple but the photographer used the light to made the picture pop. The Creative picture make me fill ready to go travel. I would like to go out and have some fun when I see the Adrian & Gidi Creative 1 picture.
