Assignment Forty Six: A Product Shot of a Mundane Product

Posted by with 1 Comment




A Product Shot… one of the staples of a commercial photographer, and something we all must master to keep the cash flow positive.

The product I want you to shoot is a surge protector.

Here is an idea sketched up by the AD.


There are many ways to make this photograph, but I want you to concentrate on making it a stylistically true image, and also make it interesting. It must be interesting, as it is the kind of “solution” oriented image that can really make it a good portfolio image.

Want to really impress… shoot a black on black or a chrome on black or white on white.

There are no issues with each, the AD is fine with black or white because they come in both colors. His only need is to show the unit in use and some cords that must be introduced. If we have them all plugged in, we cannot see the way it works, and if they are all out, it may not make sense…

Good luck.
