I bought a new pair of shoes recently, and of course being the diehard photographer that I am I couldn’t miss the opportunity to photograph the shoes in my studio! I wanted to show off the great detail on the bottom of the shoes and so used some raking light from quite an acute angle to emphasise the shape and texture. Once I was happy with the lighting on the shoe I shot the shoe on black and then used a variety of gels on the background to create a pop of colour. Which one is your favourite?
I am very grateful to the Willowton group for allowing me the opportunity to have so much fun in the studio with such a common household item! Who knew that bars of soap could be such fun to shoot? Throw in a few pieces of coloured paper and the game changes completly! Which one is your favourite?
