I wanted to talk about some location photography which Pack-Photo has worked on, this shoot was for a Liverpool Marketing company. The client is called ‘Power-tech’.
The shoot is for home work-out equipment so the location for the shoot was set in a garden, the model was sourced from a local gym so she is the real deal. It was good to get a model who knows about how to do an effective work-out because she could guide me in what exercises are going to work with the equipment we are photographing.
I didn’t want to use too much photography equipment, I used a Nikon flash gun with a wireless flash trigger and placed them on a lighting stand. The flash is positioned to the right of the camera and I have balanced the power of the light to work with the ambient light from the Sun, I used a diffuser on the flash and the flash was on at full power, to control the brightness I choose to move the flash closer or further away rather than altering the flash gun power levels. The time was around 3.30pm and the light was fading.
I wanted the focus to be reduced for the background which helps the subject to stand out, I used f/8 which gives the look I had in mind. I am very happy with how the photograph turned out, I did some tweaks to the photograph in Photoshop, I made a new layer, only selected the background and altered the levels, saturation, contrast as it needed a boost to look like a technically perfect final photograph.
I hope you liked my talk on Pack-photo’s Liverpool Product Photography, Location shoot. Please get in touch if you are looking for a professional photographer and I will be happy to answer any questions you have.
