Our daily photography challenge has turned into a weekly challenge and with that said this week's challenge was to photograph what is in your bag/purse. Since I have not been out of the house for a while, I gathered this challenge could be a hypothetical concept where If it was a possibility to step out of the house this would be my chosen purse at the moment. I tried the flat lay with a while background first and it really didn't do the set up a justice, so I switched it up with pink and it gave it a more vintage dreamy look. During the edit I tried low contrast and texture tweaks to create a soft dreamy look to emphasize a concept rather than a reality as it is in our case at the moment.
Today's challenge was to shoot your favorite film camera and mine without a doubt is Petri 7S - I fell for this camera in the first sight and it's my most precious film camera possession. I shot it in two different set up just for fun!
Quarantine life is a good opportunity to get back into practicing product photography for me, so luckily some of my Photogrpaher fiend joined the challenge and for the first day we decided on tea or coffee set up. I did a quick flat lay with everything I could fine in the house and since it was a cloudy day I had to be strategic to have my cameras and set up ready for those few moment that sun peaked through the window to shoot. That's why I ended up with two sets, the first 3 pictures are with Canon 5D Mark II + 50mm 1.4 lens and the last 2 are with Fujifilm X-T2 + Film Marco Lens.
I have found a new interest and that is Product Photography, when the skincare line "Yeouth" reached out to me via instagram for trying out their new Anti Aging Serum, I got so excited to shoot their product. However, this day the light was not cooperating and kept changing every 10 seconds and as a result some of the colors turned out over saturated but I was able to post editing process change the color tones to a vintage more low contrast vibe to match the bottle and esthetic of the product package. The brand was happy with the result at the end and so was I.
