When setting up this shot, the social media team asked for it to be shot straight on camera view onto broken glass. Well the glass was super hard to break, couldn’t smash it. In the end we used a nail and a hammer. I set-up the lighting and the camera in the studio, the shot wasn’t working to start with. When seen straight on you couldn’t see the reflection, it didn’t look like it was on glass.
I decided this shot can work but we need to change the camera angle, it took a while to change the set-up completely but we got the shot and I am well happy with it. A bit more edgy look for the Remington Brand, but it works.
The image will be used in various ways, but the image was created on an editorial photography shoot for trade magazines, online use, etc.
I have been shooting the Remington Advanced Coconut Therapy range of haircare products. Quite good products to work with, the strong colours help these types of electronic product ranges stand out. There’s some chrome elements which need careful lighting treatment in the studio.
Hair dryers seem to be more difficult to photograph then the other haircare products like the wands or straighteners. The studio set-up images can be seen on my Facebook photography page.
