This photograph is from a shoot Richard and I did a while ago. Not all pictures need to be dramatic, some only need to display the jewelry and describe it visually. One can think of this as an illustration, I suppose—but it still has to be attractive. It’s convenient for me that Richard makes beautiful jewelry. As always, I’m interested in what you think.
Lead-acid batteries have been the standard in cars since the beginning. They are rectangular prisms too. This is a lithium-ion battery, so it’s smaller and lighter. But still a box! The orange background helps it out. What do you think?
We are all part of a larger whole. The scope of the larger whole is sometimes difficult to fathom. In this case, these are pulleys, not cogs, and they have a bit of silicone or rubber to absorb shock and vibration. Smoothing out the bumps seems like a good idea in many contexts.
I like the way the translucent silicone looks. It’s always fascinating how industrial parts are beautiful objects with the right perspective and lighting.
Your image is for you to decide. You can be all buttoned up, literally and figuratively, or a little looser and more approachable. Many companies choose for you and have dressing requirements. We’ve done photography for clients who had all their executives wear white shirts with no tie, others a suit and tie, and still others like the photo above. Let me know what you think.
In the course of my work I often photograph lawyers. For attorneys, putting your name, and face, out there is a crucial step in acquiring new clients. Websites, PR releases, business cards, and social media all benefit from a good portrait. Headshots like this one can be used to fill various needs. If it’s cropped tight, it will work for a LinkedIn profile. Cropped vertically, it would work for a PR release. I am always interested in your thoughts.
My next-door neighbor has a lot of interesting old stuff. His door was open recently, and I saw this table saw. It’s a working saw, my neighbor still uses it. I was drawn to the colors and textures. It feels like it’s hiding wisdom. I asked him if I could borrow it for a few hours. I’m interested in your thoughts.
Location Photography has its share of challenges. There are lots of things you cannot control, weather large among them. On this day it was snowing and below freezing all day. We persisted and ended up with lots of good photography—the result of a great client and crew. Let me know what you think.
