I recently did a little commercial shoot for a beauty products company, photographing some bottles and a neat little display/packing idea they are just about to release. The problem with the bottle was, they don’t actually have any finished bottles. So they brought a blank prototype, and they will place the artwork on later. Also, the bottle wasn’t sealed on the end, which meant I has to photograph a similar bottle and photoshop the end onto the unfinished bottle. No big deal. That’s what happens when deadlines creep up on you – you do what you can to make it work.
The display pieces are really cool. They are actually carved out of driftwood, so no two will ever be alike! But, you get what you pay for (and this stuff is not cheap).
