One of the things I did fairly well at the Alberta College of Art and Design was table top and product photography. I didn't pursue it as I found portraiture and working with people to be more what I was in to at that time. Still I know how to make products look good and this skill has stayed with me. These last two days before school have been spent with my boy's and preparing their supplies for the start of the new year tomorrow. As such I found that I was working downstairs in the studio both evenings photographing a couple of items I found around the house.
September 1. Last year after the circus a local furniture store next to the big top was handing out gifts to the children. These decorative clocks were the prize and they each have one. Last night I was looking for something to photograph and saw it on the shelf and decided it would make a nice subject. Simple lighting, one softbox with egg crates and a black background were used. Shot with the Canon 7D at 1/125 sec, f5.6 at 100 ISO.
September 2. I came across this bottle of perfume bottle on the shelf. I immediately had an idea of how I want to shoot it.
