☞ Last week, I shot my first product photos for Betsy, the designer behind Foxtail Boutique. I met Betsy last November through my friend Melissa and when I found out that she had a jewelry line, I volunteered to help her photograph her work. I love all of her pieces, but my favorites are in the last two photos.
☞ We met up at her studio* in the industrial district, and we used one of her friends' work tables as a background. Betsy brought some props from home and did the styling. We both liked the rugged and rustic look of the work table and I'm glad we didn't cover the stains. The good light didn't last, so we moved everything to the staircase where we shot** a few pieces before going back to the table and dealing with the lower light.
* The studio is home to many local artists and you can see some of their work on the workspace's website. I recommend watching the OPB clip.
** I shot some pieces on film, but haven't had the film developed yet.
