I don't do "Product" photography, but...

February 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

...I'm taking a real risk in posting this photo! My apologies to all of you who actually do product photography work, either for yourself or for clients. I'm on a learning curve here! A year ago my family members gave me a "product tent" and also a light kit for it. I've watched YouTube videos and read some blogs, and I still have to beg your forgiveness for what might be the cardinal sins of product photography here.  (If you have any tricks or tips for improving this result, please leave a helpful comment! Thanks!)

All excuses aside, I'm posting this simply to show one of the products available on my price list. I'm not the most active cook in a kitchen these days, but I love cutting boards with images. Food images, or bright bold abstracts, or ones that entice me to actually do something with it - whether it's slice and dice or to use it for a cheese and cracker plate!

A friend begged a picture of our dogs from us one year - I thought she just liked them - who knew? And a few weeks later a gift arrived that was a glass cutting board with their picture. We love it. And use it all the time. So, that sent me on a "mission" of noticing cutting boards whenever I'm out and about in stores. Then when I discovered two of my print product partners make cutting boards (in two sizes) available for purchase, I thought I'd order one. I used my Macarons picture, uploaded and previewed the sizing of it and ordered a small one.  So, if you look carefully here, you'll see a slight thickness to the glass and the small lines of it that adds a bit of texture to the surface. There was a color shift (from warms to cool tones) from the original image, but I am very pleased with the final result. (It looks better in Real Life than in my photo of the cutting board! ...Remember my opening disclaimer of not being a Product Photographer?)  Now that I know the great quality of the product, I thought I'd post an image of it here. I can't wait to order more now from other, different images in my Galleries.  

With Spring coming and occasions such as Easter or as Weddings this summer, consider wonderfully practical - and did I say, "Beautiful" - works of art as gifts. Consider it as "Counter Art" for every kitchen - a cutting board!
