Entering contest of Photigy Live
Photigy.com runs an ongoing contest/competition on still life studio photography. It is a bi-weekly contest in which you are required to submit a creative still image of product. Alex Koloskov the lighting magician provides critique on the selected images and selects the winner.
The requirement for the contest is that you need to post the image that you have shot on photigy.com. You are also required to post the lighting setup. The lighting setup is required for critique on the image.
The Prize: The winner gets one hour consultation with Alex. Pretty exciting huh?
I am following the contest for the last one month. I found that the the biggest challenge for product photography is the requirement of a sturdy tripod and I don’t have one 🙂 many a times it is the single most reason for me, not to enter in the contest. However, This week I am planning to take the plunge and try my luck.
This weeks assignment is a textured product. I plan to shoot a purse/hand bag of my wife. It has pretty good textures in it. The challenge would be to do it creatively to get most of the lighting.
I shall be updating this post with the image that I finally enter with along with the lighting setup.
