This blog will be in no particular order, just a place to post non portfolio images and associated stories as I travel throughout my career as a visual artist. 

Rokinon 14mm on white 9/365

Rokinon 14mm on white

Yeah it's a bit banged up, still an amazing lens none the less:)

The naming convention of Everyday Household I decided to drop, some of this stuff may be not found in everyone's house, and I feel for some of the shoots planned later it wont work. 

I really wanted to just showcase one of a million different ways catalog or shooting a product on all white can be done.  I will be doing quite a bit throughout the year with highlighting different setups and ways to light.

This wasn't meant for a product portfolio shot, so before everyone rushes to say "ITS DUSTY". LOL, remember always clean your products before shooting and even further in post.  This lens has served me quite well so it has got a couple bruises to show for it.  Oh well, on the lighting.

3 Light setup, with the 2 back lights blowing out the wall and the above lighting the actual lens.  The goal of all this is to get it as close to the final product in camera vs post.  A lot of folks prefer clipping the product out and putting it on white in PS, but why do that when you can get it done in camera without all the extra hassle.

Turns out the leaking drain pipe will need to be rerouted, so I will try and have something up a little earlier tomorrow because its gonna be a long night:)

Questions, comments, or rants?  Put em in the comments section below:)
