Sam asked me about this shoot, so I approached the client.
The brief was to shoot a series of still life / product shots for their launch. No budget.
I got the product (Razors) and made a basic set-up.
The main issues were reflections, and I had a great number of problems getting images that didn't show reflections in the wrong place.
Eventually, I created an enclosed light tent, which minimized the reflections, and produced passable images.
After a period of to-and-fro from the client regarding edits, etc., he fell silent. This MIGHT have been my mail server, or it might have been his, I'm not sure. I had some issues around that period, so the shadow of suspicion would tend to be on my server.
However, he then wrote directly to my tutor...
After a brief discussion, I returned the client's equipment, and left it as that.
This (to use a colloquialism) just turned me off product photography. The client wasn't professional, he expected the world for nothing, and continually asked for edits. Then he wrote directly to my tutor.
The technical elements of the shoot were quite interesting - if annoying - but I suppose, even from failures, come lessons.
Well. Here goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
