After Anna Gravelle came over to talk to us, I realised the importance of having lifestyle photos of my work. I want people to buy and use my products as i’ve designed them suitable for purchase. This also helps me target specific audience, I’ve decided they should be on the high end of the market so I should attract people who are interested in high quality design and have income to spend.
These are some examples of inspiration I found for the shoot. It made me realise I don’t need much props but colour definitely adds a luxurious element to the pictures.
I decided to take a trip to B&Q to buy some boards for me to paint, this will allow me to change background colours quickly without needing to repaint walls. I also cut some flowers from the garden and added a candle to add warmth to the pictures.
This was the set up I had, after a couple of adjustments and editing on photoshop I managed to get decent photos of my work. If i knew how to use my dslr camera better I could have achieved much better shots, it was very difficult to get the lights to look as they do without the camera adjusting their colour and brightness.
