Day 4 of tales from behind the lens- The Value In You
Welcome back. At this point you could be forgiven for thinking, “I thought this guy was a food photographer? Yet his clients seem quite varied.” Today’s shot has integrated food into a lifestyle/product shot for The Value In You and my client is a professional coach.
I first met Roxanne at a Les Brown seminar, where the room was full of new and upcoming entrepreneurs. We had kept in touch and worked together on her headshots during a trip to London. When Roxanne asked me to create some “product” shots of her The Value In You cards, I had the inside track on the vision she had.
A recently shoot of Peanut Butter Nanaimo Bars for Wilde Orchard made the job of storytelling a lot sweeter for Roxanne’s photos. These were really fun to create. Putting yourself into someone else’s ideal client and creating a scene that will appeal to them. Not to mention a wee snack afterwards, just to keep my strength up, you understand 😉
It’s so nice to work with people who are making a difference and helping others reach their potential. I’ve benefited from coaching myself and understand it’s value when you’re a good match. Everyone needs help sometimes and these cards are designed to get you thinking about yourself and where you are in your life. That way you can go a long way to helping and understanding yourself.
This had a two light set up, the key light is camera right and a fill light from camera left, around 10 o’clock position.
