This time I chose the theme "On Spot Light" and it just happened that I took photos of products together with my friend, Odette. I had a very good day, taking photos together with her and learning new things on that day. I tried some of my new toys too. I think I'm totally hooked with off camera flash now. Loooovvveee iiiiittttt.... Gotta love ebay! We can get some products at a fraction of price than the well known brand.
This time, we are using flash to create beautiful light for different objects. From the flat to the shiny object. There are a lot of free tutorials on the internet. If I can suggest you a few of the good ones, I would say:
This site has a step by step on how to do portraits with flash. Very easy to follow.
If you have time and super creative with DIY, he has many examples of creating softboxes etc using cardboard. Nevertheless, this also a good site to learn off camera flash.
Not so much on product photography but he has written abundant of knowledge on his blog about using off camera flash.
Here are some photos of the products that we took that day. I think I spend too much talking than taking more pictures ^_^
I'm a fun and friendly Melbourne based portrait and wedding photographer.
Thank you for visiting and I look forward to having you here often!
