As a photographer you can’t stand still and think that the work you produce today is going to be able to keep you in business for life so you always need to look at ways that you can re-invent yourself (thanks to Joel Grimes for reminding me of that!). As a result of watching a workshop on commercial photography I was inspired to trying a different approaching to producing an image and used a different lighting set-up using three lights in the studio and combining this with a compositing technique in Photoshop which takes the studio image and applies it to a scene taken months before and (hopefully) blends them together so it looks like they were taken at the same time. This is a really great method of producing striking images that can be used for advertising products. This is my first attempt and I have to say that I am pretty pleased with the end result. Over the coming weeks I’ll be producing more of these so that it is another offering I can provide to my customers when they are looking for someone to help improve their brand.
