Personal project. I love the beauty that is to be found in everyday products. The toothpaste was a nightmare to photograph:)

Love the pleasing, graphic aesthetic in this. May I ask were the sparkles on the bottom of the toothpaste and top right of the brush added in post? Their subtlety finish off the image nicely for me :)

Thank you Alan! Yes, those were added in post. I had some similar "real sparks" that occurred naturally on this image that inspired me to add these.

Great job for a usually mundane object. You made it look like a luxury item.
