Philip Angell's picture

First attempt

I have been wondering about product photography for a while, and when I bought this as a Christmas gift, I decided to see if I could get something I liked before wrapping it up. This is shot with one tightly gridded speedlight held above the vase and just out of shot, and a softbox just under the lens to fill in the shadow. The backdrop is a piece of card from a variety pack I've had hanging around for ages!

Any thoughts or comments gratefully received :-)

Hi Philip, i think, this is a great photo. I love the colors and the texture in this photo. i´m not a professional photographer and like you i´m already starting in product photography, but what i would suggest is to highlight the bottum of the vase a little bit so that it´s not completely dark.
