182nd Show & Tell Competition: Creative Product Images - WIN

Post Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:30 am


Ok Guys, Time for the results. Very tough to narrow the results down, Loved the photos.

Honorable Mentions:
All images portary some very creative touches to the simple things that we use and see everyday. It was hard to narrow it down to three entries, but here we go...

Peter Stubley


Juan Leon


monica memoli




Third Place:
viljamix
Very creative, Nice compostion and angle. The mouse trap makes you think for a second about what the actual item is... a mouse, a computer mouse. I love the creative touch of adding the windows logo to the mouse trap as the bait. Not sure if this is an insult on windows or an image promoting another copmuter brand, like apple... but it defenitely tells a story. It does have a slightly "over-photoshopped" feel to it, but that is out weighed by the story and humor.


Second Place:
Terry Bowker
A very simple shot on an everyday object. The composition falls easily into the rule of thirds, so it is pleasing to the eye. The lighting is somewhat intruiging... The simple single light setup can cause the shadow falling across the foreground, But I am having some trouble in figuring how the front of the item is lit up so well, that you are able to see what it is. Generally, with a single light setup, with the light behind the subject, should cause the front of the subject to fall into shadow. Great use of bouce/reflection or fill flash. Very simple yet intruiging lighting and composition, Love it!


First Place:
Brad Claypole.
First off, I have to mention that I am by no means a sports fan. I cannot stand sports and despise hearing about any sports related news or gossip. So this image was chosen purely for the details. This image demonstrates everything required for a creative product shot. The angle, composition are truely unique. By using the selective coloring only on the hockey stick draws your eye directly to the object/product that is the main focus, also by having the stick as the only sharp item in the photo, you know what your looking at only after you decipher the rest of the photo and identify what is in the action blur. I could easily see this as an advertisement in a magazine.
