The project: Product shots for web and social media.
The client gave me some example images for mood; but I had creative freedom for the most part. Here's what I came up with:
My favorite shot from the job.
In this composite shot, the background is part of a 3D kitchen I had previously created in Blender. I mixed that with some painting in Photoshop. Then I dropped in the images of the bottle and pack.
Strawberry is my favorite flavor! Chocolate next.
Finding a Vanilla Planifolia orchid was nearly impossible, as they bloom only one day per year. So I created one in 3D. I had been wanting to better my skills in "Blender" anyway; so this was a great opportunity!
I had photographed the bottle in my studio first. Then in Blender, I made a replica of the set and lights. Mimicking the same lighting as I used on the real set, I rendered the flower. [Preliminary modeling screen shots below]
Mock-ups I showed the client nearly a year prior.
I began modeling a honey dipper to see how quickly I could do it, but then decided not to go with it.
