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.

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