still life - luxury candles

This week's blog features creative still life and packshot photography for London-based lifestyle brand, The Bird Box, producers of handmade, beautiful, sustainably sourced, candles; all lovingly made using pure essential oils.

The Bird Box have a simple ethos which is to make products that not only smell great, but that also have real therapeutic benefits and I was commissioned to provide images to be used for web banners and social media platforms, featuring the complete range of candles.

In keeping with this theme, the images would need to be simple, yet eye-catching - plain white background for the packshots.  For the creative pieces,  I used minimal props to maintain the clean feel, but still add some visual interest - feathers and ribbons and even splashes of colour.
