As a still life photographer my client base can be quite varied, ranging from advertising agencies and design agencies to blue chip companies and brand new start ups. This week's photoblog showcases product photography for creative design agency DDLondon, created for a series of high quality design-led books, stationery and other printed materials.
It was a pleasure working on behalf of this design studio led by Duncan Alexander and Dominic Evans who, with over ten years experience in the creative industry, are managing the brand and design function at one of the world's leading property development management and interior design houses.
It was important to highlight the texture and fine detail of the product, so the final pieces include a mixture of close-up macros and artistically composed still life group shots. Lighting imbalances can detract from the overall design, so one of the challenges was to balance the shadows, especially against coloured paper, whilst emphasising reflective textures - sometimes in the same shot.
