When it comes to photography I can't help but feel like I still have so much to learn. I'm saying this as a good thing, as I believe in growing, always learning and experiencing new things.
I started as being a huge fan of the simple white background as it does so much for product photography: it's safe, simple, cheap even, but it manages to do so well that one thing that product photography needs to do - make the product pop and stand out.
But, as that little adventurous feeling that we call change tries us all, I started to add different props, fabrics and textures to my photos. I started to look everywhere for that perfect vintage-looking book, cute small dishes, all kinds of lace and polka dotted fabrics - oh, the wonderfulness of it all!
Even though all it's great that way - placing a product in a context, giving it a story, I found myself wanting to go back to the "less is more" philosophy. I'm not saying I'm becoming a minimalist or anything, I'm just somewhere in between. But I did get the urge to re-take some photos of some of the products in my shop - I do have a different camera now, after all.
You can find all these in my shop :)
Which type of product photography do like best?
Have fun and enjoy photography!
