All photographers use colors very well. They are very creative, and have good effects of the products
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.
I like the idea that every photographer used. My favorite are Dina Belenko and the money rolled up from Sam Kaplan. They are simple and fun as well as pretty straight forward. I like the way the light is being used. The creativity that was put into each image. I also really like the Captain Morgan bottom. I like how the bottle is in the middle and a lot of little lights lighting it up.
I had a hard finding pictures I liked. The still life are simple and elegant. They tell a story with their comopstion. The simple product uses light to draw you focus and creates a since of dram to them. I chose the photos that had a lot of color and a little bit of fun for the creative photos. It was the lighting that drew me to most of the photos.
The images I chose for the still life category (top row) each have a clear theme that they represent. They are commercial-style images but without a specific product to showcase. The simple product images (middle row) all show clean backgrounds and a straight-forward product, with few accessories. The creative products (bottom row) showcase the products in unique ways, showing off the characteristics or re-imagining the product’s intended use.
I will have to be honest here … Not much of the still life and small product images I found was doing it for me. Maybe I was searching using the wrong criteria; who knows? That said, I tended to be drawn to mostly simple images that were not over cluttered. I also tended to be drawn to the darker images (black backgrounds). There were other images that I liked, but I could not associate them with any professional photographer or business, so they were sent to the trash.
Love the creativity: use of patterns, floating in midair effect, simple yet dynamic product shots, etc. I would like to do some experimenting with patterns, mirror reflections and high contrast black backdrop shots.
