Making Not Taking Photographs

Backstage views on making photographs professionally

Product Photography, ultimate image….

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2008

This photo was made with more than 25 exposures in 3 cameras on 4×5 film. The effect intended was to have this product depicted as a planet… with the product’s installation tools orbiting. Of course, the planet is lit from the inside to depict molten lava.

The print was 10 feet wide by 8 feet tall and it was impressive. The client made a lot of money, sold the company at a profit and retired. I, on the other hand, am still working. Perhaps, I should have done the photo for free only asking for a % ?

So what are these products?

nozzlesAnswer: They are nozzles you would use in a hot tub for air bubbles.
