A2B Local Photoshoot

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Shots for the A2B Local website were taken on a Sunday at the industrial estate. The roller shutters gave the perfect neutral, industrial-looking backgrounds.

Using a long exposure made the package blurred, making the logo and models the focal point of the shots.

I wanted a selection of images to choose from for the website so we also set up shots at various office doors as well. To light the inside as well as the outside bounced flash was used in the hallways to give a soft fill-in.

Packaging Shots for BD Foods

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

I am working on the website and designs for BD Foods in St. Leonard’s. Each of the products is supplied to different clients in different packaging, so to standardise the appearance on-line, I decided to shoot empty bottles and containers without labels.

Each of the containers was shot on its own, then cutout. This group shot was made up of different layers in Photoshop. By making some of the layers slightly see-through it was possible to give the effect of semi-transparent plastics. (See the two squeezy bottles in the middle of the group).

I have also shot example products to appear in the menu of the website. Plus a whole range of food shots to use on the website… more blog photos coming soon!

Frankincense & Myrrh

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

The little box I bid for on Ebay has been delivered in the nick of time so the missing label for Copenhagen candles has now been shot.

I took out the red lining to the box and packed it with the faux resins made from sugar crystals and dried apricots. With some sparkly side lighting and a few drops of water the treasure looks fit for a King…!

Copenhagen Candles Design Updates

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Copenhagen Candles are constantly changing their range of perfumed candles – and the packaging too.

These are a range of simple labels for their newest range of ultra-stylish candles with beautiful stainless steel lids.

All the shots where taken here in the studio, with a few cheats along the way. Vanilla flowers are hard to find, so this is in fact the bottom of a plastic milk bottle chopped up and yellow highlighter pen added to the back.

The baby powder had the bottom chopped of and then clamped to a stand. The powder could then be topped up without taking the set to pieces. The flow of powder looked ok but I thought maybe water or milk might give a more defined edge. Wrong! it just sloshed all over the studio floor, but worth a try. The final shot had the stream of powder retouched and curved down in photoshop.

The last shot is waiting for a little jewellery box ‘treasure chest’ to put the faux Frankincense and Myrrh into. I put a bid in for two on Ebay and managed to win both of them, so will have to see which of the two looks the best.

Having researched the Frankincense and Myrrh resins I found a remarkable likeness to them in sugar crystals and dried apricots! so watch this space to see what the final shot looks like.

Maison Catalogue Update

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Now this year’s big furniture shows are over and the new ranges have been chosen, its time for me to up-date Maison’s hundred and fifty page catalogue. This year the changes have generated another 10 pages to the catalogue. Most of the job involves scanning and cutting out their supplier’s photos. For me the best part is combining the furniture into their collection pages. The pages are used in the catalogue, website and for their in-store point of sale, so they have to look simple, informative, and attractive. Read more about my work for Maison.
