YEah...please do share your light blending setup...i've seen this setup in 24/7 stock image books.

Yo Semota...you got some interesting industrial shots in your gallery...I rarely dig into my devianart gallery, a year to be exact!

Hi Semota... U have a lot of very interesting stuff in your devianart gallery... do post them.. I like your experimentions
Thanks guys...very flattered to hear that :) well..i try my best...Deviantart does not support hotlinking so i usually have to do additional transfers to photobucket.com to make the image appear here...very troublesome.. :sweat:

Yah..i do a lot of experimentations..i dont even dare call myself photographer because i am one of those who happen to use the camera as the tool to take what i need to reproduce the image i saw in my head when i am at the location.

BUt of course sometimes have to be a photographer when money beckons..haa. :bsmilie:

tell me which one you like and i try posting it here...i need some critics to keep me improving as well!! thanks guys!

Too red in my opinion. Looks like having a bad cut after shaving.

A nice and cool colour will be good for shavers.

No offence please. ;p

mm...this make a very good discussion...regarding the use of colours..i think ruthbaby wanted to shoot the product different from the usual ways of shooting, the cool sleek methods as proposed by virgo..but then...as a commercial image, if the product photo appears nice and eye catchy..i dont see why not? after all...she may have aleady achieved two objectives, one as a creative photographer and as well as having a happy client. So that would have made her better than one who would shoot the typical kind of photo for the kind of product.... :thumbsup:

well..sometimes i feel photographers should attend visual comm classes or even better, take design theory, at least some conceptualisation would have made their photos better....that's how i feel for most local photographers who are really good technically but their photos are still lacking something...
:think:

i am still searching as well...trying out ways and means to do what i preach...but hell...i guess as long as you are happy with wat you do and shoot...i am fine... :D

PS: i am not trying to flame anyone okay? well...its more focused on the matter rather than the poster...i love you all man... :lovegrin:
