Learn the object prior to advertise it

This is a true story about my unexpected involvement in advertising baby nutrition and I would like to share the experience with the community. Real names of the product manufacturer and the glossy magazine are left out not to damage their reputation.So, to start I’m a doctor pediatrician living in Kyiv, Ukraine. One day a relative of my sister-in-law, a nice girl, who worked in Ukraine as a distribution manager for a European company producing baby nutrition asked me to meet up with... continue reading

How To Take a Shadowless Object/Product Photograph

Hi,I loved this blog writing thing...one of my recent blogs is in the Google’s first page and it made me feel really proud. So I think I will keep writing :)Whatever...Altough I’m not a professor or expert on studio lighting, I want to write about “shadow-less object / product photography”. You know we generally put our objects on a white seamless paper or anything like that and whenever we click the shutter, there is a shadow on the ground. Then we struggle to delete that shadow... continue reading

How long does it take you to isolate? (Thinking after master-class)

Hi, Friends.I usually spend crazy amount of time on isolation (about 40 minutes). Yesterday I saw on youtube a master-class where the photographer said he spends on it 3 minutes only. I put down his method and tried. Same 40 minutes, but the result much worse than before. Some objects with difficult shape were absolutely impossible to isolate this way. The ugly edges remained, plus dirty background. For this reason I ask - is it me alone having this problem? How long does it take you to isolate... continue reading
