I've always wanted to try product photography, and I guess this is a good start.
gorgous sled! but, one small note, I would love these shots if the nose wasnt just out of frame in the first and the tail out on the last one!
Heh. I was all ready to start swearing at you.
I like the angles, but I agree about the crops. All three feel awkward to me.
hmm, even the second one? nothing seem's to be cut off in that one...
Oh well, I was planning on doing a re-shoot anyway's.
Oh, and the main goal of this shoot was to learn how to create a black background by relying on the flash for the main light. So I think that part went good..
The crop on the left is a touch close, but it's not that big of a deal.
ahh, I was sorta thinking that to.. thank's for your input mark.
whuts the surface the car is on to make it reflect like so?
Nice shots pilgram. The 2nd would be the better one out of the 3. I agree that the crop on the left is a little too close. This is kind of the poor man's way of taking car shots. The expensive cars at car shows are usually fenced off and there's usually too many people around them so it's basically pointless to try to take shots.
I hate the term "product" photography. Still life or " Just got in from a night drive in my Viper..." are much more appropriate. The angles and perspective seem to be on target. Excellent job on getting the background black with in black.
Keep in mind that in most cases you get fired for cutting off the merchandise. Shooting at f22 or there abouts is almost mandatory. If you really want to get silly, level the camera.
It's sitting on this hard plastic case. I might try a mirror tonight...
Thank's for the feedback everyone.
