    is this used for fossil?
    if it is, it really looks like a wrong choice of model for me. much has been said about knowing the brand in one of the threads.

    actually, the most basic thing about advertisement is, never let a customer tilt its head to view the product you are selling.

    and u either show, or you totally dun show the model's face... as in sharp overall pic, or only product visible only.

    product should be centre of attraction, unless the model is a famous star endorsing the product.

    Ok. Advertising pictures.

    What is advertising?
    advertise |ˈadvərˌtīz|
    verb [ trans. ]
    describe or draw attention to (a product, service, or event) in a public medium in order to promote sales or attendance : a billboard advertising beer | many rugs are advertised as machine washable |

    [ intrans. ] we had a chance to advertise on television.
    • seek to fill (a vacancy) by putting a notice in a newspaper or other medium : for every job we advertise we get a hundred applicants | [ intrans. ] he advertised for dancers in the trade papers.
    • make (a quality or fact) known : Meryl coughed briefly to advertise her presence.
    • archaic notify (someone) of something : some prisoners advertised the French of this terrible danger.
    DERIVATIVES advertiser noun

    ORIGIN late Middle English : from Old French advertiss-, lengthened stem of advertir, from Latin advertere ‘turn toward’ (see advert 2 ).

    Entry courtesy of the Oxford American Dictionaries. (Only Oxford for me!)


    Firstly, what message does your product like to convey? In this retrospect, you must consider a certain number of factors, like target audience, their tastes, population demographics, etc.

    Then, THE advertising shot ALSO depends on the type of marketing campaign it is presented in. For example: the BMW "Mini" campaign. Notice that the car is marketed as part of an ideal 'trend setter's lifestyle", thus the advertising shots on the Mini has to fulfill this criteria, depicting a 'trendsetter'''s mundane day and how she has to finish her day with the Mini. An advertising shot must contain the marketing message.

    Usually, an advertising shot has to make use of clever lighting/shallow DoF to emphasize the product or subject. In other words, the photograph must make the product stand out. You have definitely fulfilled this criteria, BUT the image must fulfill the above conditions as well. Otherwise, it is just a shot of a watch.
