Shiseido Pureness

Shiseido Pureness has a beautiful sky-blue shell form. It was quite a challenge to photograph it for a beauty blog.  It’s glossy surface required special technic.

3 shots were requested by customer: Package, Open, details. Below is my solution to these requirements.

In the first shot I was solving the problem of getting a nice transition on curved surface from highlight to shadow. The glossy table surface was also selected especially to emphasize the play of light.

Try on your own to capture a product with mirror and reflect label of the product in the mirror.

The last shot took actually the most of the session time to  position a highlight correctly on the Shiseido label.

You can check similar shots  in my cosmetics portfolio.

Equipment: Sony a7, Canon nFD 80-200, Canon 500d

A bottle of red wine: Ruffino, Chianti, Italy.

I like photograph bottles. This bottle attracted me by the form of the etiquette. As far this is a bottle of dark glass I selected low key shot: black bottle on a black background.
