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