I wanted to share the origin of the hardware pics, they are for a pressure washer parts replacement company here in Portland. They hired me to shoot a bunch of parts, way more then what you see, so I just took a cross section of samples to put on my site.
Shooting them on set is very tricky because when you have small items and you try to set them all up on a white board, most likely you are going to bump the set and all your work is destroyed. So, to avoid this problem, you shoot each piece alone and put them together in photoshop and align them exactly, and then make a drop shadow and then apply a watermark accordingly to the clients needs. So, I did, they were very pleased with the results and that is what you see…..
