So school started today with a meeting with the headmaster informing about what is happening this spring. The 14th of February we are going on a school excursion to Marrakesh doing documentary work I guess, and we will be back around the 19th. Also we started the first course this year, photo-marathon for about three weeks. This first assignment is a pack-shot of Gastromat, an all Norwegian spice-mix that has been around for about 50 years. The pack-shot is supposed to be of a commercial dimension with a soup an assortment to the pack-shot. I’ve added a test photo of how I want my picture to come out, finding the right angels and the right lighting before entering the studio tonight doing both the soup and the box. When I’m done testing I’ll have some lunch before I go hunt for a proper soup bowl to go with the box, find a backdrop that will be more clean and at last make the soup.
This picture is natural lit from the window and a reflector about 45 degrees to the left of the box and the bowl.
This weekend I am going to do some editorial work for the Norwegian web magazine Hipster.no and i just got off the phone with Pia, my new boss. She had some really great plans for Trondheim by covering up to three night clubs and lounges, and also some events. Hang out on Vega this weekend and have your picture taken :)
You might have noticed that I suddenly have began writing in English. This is a part of my “renewal” this year, hoping to reach out to more photographers world wide. A bold attempt, but worth a shot. Also I need to practice my English so it is a great opportunity to exerciser on my blog.
