|Another close-up. This one is of a model in my studio with focus placed on the drop of water on the end of the tube. Shot with a 105mm Nikkor macro lens and D3s camera.|
The difference is in the details:
Since this blog is primarily about shooting stock photography, I thought it would be interesting to include these two very simple images from my most recent stock shoot because they illustrate the really subtle, but extremely important difference between a successful and unsuccessful stock photo.
Many of the best selling stock photo lifestyle situations are oftem very humble events, such as the one depicted here. It was shot with models in a kitchen scene created in my studio. Infusing everyday domestic scenes such as this with a feeling of spontaneity, and action is not always easy. The concept of family values in this simple domestic scene centers on the relationship of a mother and daughter working together. The goal is to tell a simple story without going over board -- one that still maintains the believability of the scene.
