This was a fun project. The day job, Nu Skin, needed two cleanser heads for their ageLOC LumiSpa photographed, edited, and delivered today. I brought in my lighting gear and set up on a tripod. I even tethered the computer to the camera so I could see instantly the results. I love the tethering capabilities in Capture One software.
I shot these items with a macro lens and to get everything sharp I used a technique called focus stacking. I took about 4-7 photos and changed the focus from the front of the head to the back of the head. And then using Photoshop I can combine them and any blurry parts are removed! Success! Next time I might buy a macro rail slider to help with this process. It’s pretty common to do for products and macro photography.
Here is a behind the scenes photo of todays shoot. Pretty simple with one light, white paper is used as reflectors, my laptop is plugged in, and the tripod is tripodding. Yay!
Afterwards, our retoucher cleaned things up. Cause we want perfection in our photos, yay!
These next two photographs were not created today. I photographed these two products a few months ago. One is the acne cleanser. And the other are TWO gentle cleansing heads. I had shot the two heads stacked like this for another market. Today’s single head was shot as an alternate to the two heads. I now sound like I’m babbling. Either way, people like options in their product photography. And these were to compliment a whole host of other photos that were outsourced.
