I have a lot of fun at my day job. There is always something new happening and new projects. If I was doing the same thing over and over, I would hate it.
The Latin American Market department asked for help in photographing a new pink product for a Valentine’s Day social media campaign. We spent the afternoon photographing the LumiSpa with different accessories including a pink purse.
We had a someone who was in charge of the styling. They and picked the accessories such as glasses, perfume, and a pink faux fur throw. I was in charge of photography, lighting, and picking the backgrounds. We used white, pink, and red for backgrounds. I did not need to do any retouching… so these photos are straight out of camera!
If I was to retouch… I would be turning the background pure white. And I would be cleaning up any distracting elements. Although, social media often feels more “real” if there is minimal Photoshop. Yes, you want things to look their best, but that can be done in front of the lens, and not in the computer.
This shoot was fun! And it was a chance to practice some Spanish. Hooray!
