    Default ***Assignment: Product Photography (Aug 20 - Sept 3)***

    This week's assignment is "Product Photography". You've just been hired by *insert name of local huge department store here* to shoot an object that you would find on their shelves - how will you shoot it? how will you light it?

    My example for a coffee shop. I used a Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens:
    I Make a Mean Cappuccino (by saralonde)
    Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
    Exposure: 0.025 sec (1/40)
    Aperture: f/5
    Focal Length: 100 mm
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0/3 EV
    Flash: Flash did not fire

    Here are the rules:

    1. The image you submit should be taken between the August 20th (when it was announced) and September 3rd (up until one of the moderators closes the the mini-contest).

    2. EXIF data needs to be intact. It helps if you can include the main points (including camera, lens, date taken, ISO, shutter speed and aperture) in the text of your message.

    3. Your post must include "Assignment: Product Photography" to show your permission to count it for the contest.

    4. Only one entry per member (if you can't restrain yourself until the end of the first week you can post two or three separate pictures but your entry should be in a separate post and the only marked with the text above).

    5. Remember the cross-site image size limit (640px on the longest side).

    6. If the image does not exist in post at the end of the contest, it is disqualified. If you modify anything on flickr and re-save the image then the link is broken and the message needs edited to link the picture again before it will be included in the contest.

    For everyone, please do not repeat other people's photos by quoting them until the contest is over. If you want to comment on or discuss an entry you can use a link to it (or just delete the picture from the quoted text).

    Next week's assignment is Contre-jour. Contre-jour is a french term meaning "against the light". Take a photo that exploits lighting and plays with under and over-exposed areas to dramatic effect - in other words, the complete opposite of HDR approaches which try to compress the range of contrast.

    Default Assignment: Product Photography

    Bagels (adjusted image)

    Camera: Nikon D40
    Exposure: 1/6s
    Aperture: f/? (manual lens)
    Focal Length: 50mm (I think this was my 50mm f/1.8 lens)
    ISO Speed: 200

    Don't be afraid of a bit of post processing. Looking back, I think I should have made this one whiter but it is definitely a step up from the original in terms of that "product shot" look.

    Hmmnn... reminds me, it's been a while since I baked bagels!

    Default Assignment: Product Photography

    This is one of the objects in my collection of computer stuff. I figured I'd dress it up like a new product announcement.

    I'll identify it later, over the week-end. Remember, if you know what it is, you might be dating yourself.

    Genuine ferrite core memory. Provided character storage for the IBM 2821 Control Unit. Typically attached to a 1403 printer. Probably 1963-1965 time frame. If you look at the full size photo, the rows of black things are doughnuts (cores) on edge. The red is sensor wire laced through the individual cores.

    And it's NOT Food!
