I advertise myself as a food photographer. Food photography is my passion. Food photography gets my creative juices (as well as digestive juices) flowing. But, food photography is not all I do. I also shoot lots of products. I get product photography jobs for a wide variety of products from women’s lingerie to manufactured parts for perfume bottles. I even do headshots occasionally. But, just once in awhile, I get a very interesting product photography project.
The last shoot that I did was something out of the ordinary and at first sounded a little weird. It was for a metal recycling company. OK, I know that sounds fairly normal. The interesting part was how they get their metal to recycle. It comes from the remains after cremation. Did you ever wonder what happens to those knees, shoulders, and hips that people have replaced? Or the metal rods and screws to hold bones together? They are all recyclable metals, including the bridges and crowns. I have to admit that there were some very interesting shapes, colors and textures in these products and they made for some very interesting images. Here is a small sample.
For those interested just in food photography, I’ve updated my photo book with some new projects. Take a look by clicking HERE and tell me what you think.
