This is probably the final product photograph I will put online but it is another photograph that was challenging to take so I felt that it was worth explaining. Firstly, this item is very small, the bits are less than two inches long but more obviously it is quite a lifeless subject. The clear plastic container slides inside the black plastic to hold the ten tiny drill bits in place and without taking them out like this, it is impossible to clearly see what the product it, ideally there would be an action photograph with one of the these drill bits being used but that is out of the question at the moment.
Because the item is so small it was really pushing the close up limitations of my Nikon lens, an ideal lens is a dedicated macro lens but as some of you may know, all my photographs are taken with the same lens (however, this may change in the not to distant future).
Lighting wise I feel this is spot on because you don’t notice it, there is no shadows because a three flash set up was used to light the subject from all angles. Compositionally I think that the two drill bits out their packaging should be facing the same way and that my camera should have been a little lower on the tripod but apart from those two small problems this is one of my best product photographs in my opinion.
