The assignment was to produce a hero header image for an e-commerce venture that specialized in luxury fashion accessories.  Because they used white backgrounds all of the time, they specifically didn't want a plain background.  Because this was a header, they also wanted a 16 x 7 aspect ratio.

 

I decided to shoot down, mounting a Godox SK-300 strobe and soft box on a light boom.  Then I used super clamps, to hold a 5-in-1 diffuser in between the product and the light box. 

 

I got the background by using a studio gray backdrop.  To get the background colour, I placed a Yongnuo speed light on a miniature tripod about 3 ft from the backdrop.  I taped a Strobist gel to the speed light head, then taped a small piece of parchment paper in front of that.

EXIF data:

  • 24-70/f2.8 @ 46mm
  • 1/125 sec
  • f16

My instructor loved the shot.  The only suggested change was to use one of the Nik plug-ins to very slightly brighten the stones on the brooch.  He was very satisfied with the revised version.

 

Thanks for looking, everyone.  :)

Excellent, Mark. Great colours...

 

Thank you, Herman. 

 

Like you, I really liked the colours.  I was tickled pink when I found a gel that would compliment the scarf.  :)
