I have been known to have my image featured on the front cover of some editorial photography and I wanted to show them off. This example was a editorial photography shoot in Liverpool for a company called Intratech. They sell heat lamps for the car bodywork industry.
I have done product photography for this business before and they brought me in again to shoot for the front cover of Repair & Refinish Review, it’s a trade magazine for the car bodywork industry. The lighting was tricky for this photo-shoot, I used natural light as my main light source, I also balanced this with a studio flash head which I used as a fill-in flash, but there is also the light from the heat lamp to consider which I was able to balance as well.
When I was shooting I had be considerate about the composition, the fact that I needed to leave room for the Magazine title at the top of the image, also there would be other text on the front cover. I think I got the balance right and as you can see it has worked well as a front cover shot for a trade editorial.
After the shoot I process the images from RAW format into TIFF, I then work on them in Photoshop to get a nicer finish to the photograph. Only when I start working with extra layer would I then save the photograph as a Photoshop file format. People like Megan Trianor seem to have a problem with Photoshop, but not me….
