As my startup gear brand Eupidere , we face more and more photographic challenges in shooting thrifty product photos. Recently, I had just minutes to come up with an image that is a) eye catching, and b) Christmas related. There are lots of Christmas decorations around right now and the little guy above, wearing striped pajamas, is one of them. We decided to put him into a winter scenery and wish everyone Merry Christmas.

The idea seemed to be complicated, but in the end it wasn’t. The snow piles in the foreground were made of sheets of white paper and the background is simply a flat screen TV displaying an image of a night sky. The subject was lit with a hot shoe mounted flash, pointed to the right and bounced off a nearby wall. Shooting took 10 minutes at most.

Two years ago, we did the same thing with a macro shot of a ring. In that show, I used the Playstation 3’s menu system, which is capable of displaying different themes. The reflective surface was the base of a wine glass. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at that shoot (sorry, it’s not in English):

Here’s the ring photo that resulted:

And that’s how you can incorporate a flat screen TV into some cheap, do-it-yourself product photo shoots.

P.S. If you enjoyed this idea, be sure to check out how I shot commercial product photos in a bathtub.

If you are Polish, you may have already heard about Eupidere as the news spread accross all the major photography oriented websites in Poland. During shows and workshops we have talked with people a lot recently and you keep asking if Eupidere means we are out of photography now. Do we still take pictures? Yes, we do! Even more than ever! But from now on, we work with Eupidere A LOT!

Being clients to ourselves (Eupidere is our own brand of high quality leather straps) is so much different from what we are used to. No more acting professionals, no (...).
