This has been a tiring week. A new client with 52 product shots plus styled food shots, and I can honestly say that I am working for peanuts…specifically, Bakers’ Southern Traditions peanuts. I never had blister fried peanuts before and boy, were they good. I’m glad that the client sent lots of them so, I could sample them as I went along. The dark chocolate covered peanuts were outrageous. (I know – I’m not allowed but, I couldn’t resist tasting just one.) The Cajun peanuts on the other hand, were much too hot for me.
My stylist and I had to prepare and shoot a peanut soup for a package and then style some of the products. Creativity was running wild as we selected backgrounds and plates. The peanuts looked marvelous but, you can’t style 13 products in 3 or 4 sizes and have each and show every product container, alone and in groups and expect to do it in one day. So I put together the “product shots” with the white wood background that the client requested in one day and did they styled beauty shots the next. Now comes the editing.
What was motivating me to keep going was the knowledge that I get to eat these delicious peanuts when its all over. Like I said, I’m working for peanuts. Bring on the pecans 🙂
