Industrial Photography

Industrial Photography in Metro DetroitWe recently completed a project for Raymond. I’m not sure I’d call what I was doing in the studio industrial photography. It feels more like large product photography. Dave shot the other half of the project in a warehouse, so I guess it’s actually a large product that’s industrial. Having a good-looking, well-designed product really helps when you’re trying to make photography that’s dynamic. Red is a great color, and there is no question that it makes the lift trucks distinctive and attractive.

I like using lower angles on this product; it doesn’t deliver as much information, but it makes it look bigger and heavier, more substantial. I added the blue background. Our client put them on white, more appropriate for their purposes, but not as striking.

As always, I am interested in any feedback or response you might have. Please let me know what you think.

Food Photographer on Location

I recently had the opportunity to do some food photography at Isabella’s, a restaurant in the Soaring Eagle Casino. I spent the day there shooting in a separate dinning room so we would not disturb the patrons.

Working with an assistant, we brought in studio strobes, and set up at a couple of different tables. There was window light as well, so I used a mix of strobe and ambient light. I think it can be a little more interesting when there is a mix of light. The Chef was great, and we had lots of assistance and cooperation from everyone. We shot appetizers, entries and desserts. Food photography is always challenging and lot of fun. Unfortunately, there was not much time to do any gaming or see any shows.Food Photography
