Week seven of Project365 on Flickr has come and gone. I dropped the ball when in came to creativity and thinking outside of the box this week. I don’t have any images I’m proud of, but I did learn a cool new editing technique.
Have you ever wondered how product photos are shot with perfectly white backgrounds? I have, and as far as I can tell, good editing is the only way to achieve a pristine white backdrop. For day 48 of 365, I decided I would give it a whirl. I used this tutorial from Nicole Balch of Making It Lovely. I didn’t use a light tent (I was too lazy), instead I used white poster board, natural light and a deflected flash. Nicole’s image is a lovely tea cup. Mine is what I had within reach. Toys and Teeth. What does that say about me?
