My instructor said that she preferred mine over the original. I can see why. It looked like the original on the bottom was shot in a studio whereas, mine was in public. Mine on the top seems to represent the everyday woman shopping. The one on the bottom seemed to be more towards the affluent shopper. Either way they both represent shopping. Plus, I still had more learning.
Then I saw a spice company with Models trying to advertise the product. It really did not seem the images would be effective as the Model seemed to be more of the subject in the image then the product. I wanted to give it a try. I had some images in mind.
I knew that the product needed to be in the image. I work with a young lady to actually use the product in preparing food. We did get a few good images that day. I do hope the inserts to the images helped to define the product.
I know that people normally associate spices for grilling and are normally targeted to men since they normally grill. Although, I know that I would use a young lady preparing food in a kitchen would be acceptable since choosing spices as I believe is not just limited to men.
I was happy the way these images turned out and the young lady performed very well. I still need to do the grill image. My thoughts are that both this girl and her father could represent family cooking out. That will be my next adventure. I sure Breana will be ready to shoot.
In case you are wondering the spice was really good.

It is good to be able to write again. I have been busy with traveling, work and recovering from a heart attack in January. The medical care I received while in Germany was great. They saved my life. I do seemed to be back to normal except I now get cold very easily. In the past month I had the opportunity to do some Boudoir shoots in the past month. This is what I have wrote about before in previous post.
As I reflect back on several of the women that I have worked with in the past month in which I feel blessed that they have become part of my life. They are a treasure in my heart. I have learned a lot from them and I know we will all be shooting again. One of the shoots I would like to do is an outside Boudoir shoot with these ladies. Right now I am renting a house and just waiting for the new house to be built and hope to move in in June.
Since Winter weather slows down shooting outside what I have done is set-up a studio in my rental home. Then when I move into my new house I will have more space for a new studio. It makes shooting easy since we have privacy and do not have to worry about the weather. Although, I am looking forward to the warm weather that is coming in the next several months. Meanwhile, I been busy planning for the move to a new home.
I had realized that I was going to have to acquire more equipment for my studio. I do have some simple backdrops but those are in storage. However, I need more to choose from depending on the shoot. I have ordered a nice back drop in which is a dark blue on one side and then a nickel grey on the other the back. It allows me to have a choice when shooting.
I am also considering getting a second strobe light. I have been using an Alien Bee which has been a great strobe light. I do have other lights and may just invest in a beauty dish for my strobe light.
Either way I am now confident that 2017 will be a great year for Michael Tillack Photography.
