product photography

Estée Lauder Product Photography

I saw something like this many moons ago, I cant remember were and thought I would like to try that sometime, so today was the day. This was a 4 light set up, 1 either side, 1 for the background to make it white and a spot with a snoot on to bring out the front of the jar.
With all this setup it was time to do some product photography to happen, but I had to work out how to get this shot and that takes a lot longer than actually taking the shot. In all I thing from idea, then set up, taking the pictures and all the clean up in photoshop it took me about 5 hours, which seems a long time to just do some product photography but I think it is worth it.
