The purpose of this project was to fine tune our commercial photography skills by finding a product with a very reflective surface and photographing it in studio to create a professional image that could be used as a print or digital ad. Being a musician, I chose my steel snare drum which has a polished chrome-like finish which made it very difficult to work with, but the results are quite spectacular. The image was shot in a professional photo studio with proper lighting techniques and then touched up in Photoshop for the final, polished presentation.
Slide between the two images to see the radical transformation the image took over the course of the project, and click directly on the image to view it fullscreen.
