I did something completely different from what I nowadays do. I have to admit it was a bit of a flashback moment but all in a good way! I don't know if many of you know that I used to photograph products, styled shoots and designed marketing materials. Yes, it all helped to fund PASiNGA as a creative studio as I started out.
Fast forward ... I asked some selected makers to loan me their wonderful products for my Christmas Special this year and among them was Rebecca from [M]Botanicals. Well, what can I say I couldn't resist but to say "yes" as she asked me if I could do some more photographs for her. Anyhow, I wont bore you any longer with the details but since this is a styled shoot and a unique concrete cube is the main prop I thought it would be of interest to you too and could inspire you on how you may also use your PASiNGA concrete prop for your curated or editorial photoshoots! So here we go ...
I hope you feel inspired not just to style and photograph but to light a wonderful candle. If you like - go on and read my artisan Christmas gift guide series and learn more about her eco-friendly handcrafted products and meet many other wonderful designer maker along the way.
Have a beautiful day,
Another big batch of unique geometric concrete modular sculpture solids is here!
I am so excited to write this update today. The first batch of these versatile solids was thanks to you a great success and the second batch has been available to you for about 3 weeks. Thank you for waiting so patiently while I crafted the sets and some of you have already called first dips!
Anyhow some sets are still available for next day shipping and I will add more unique combinations and finishes to the collection. So it will always be worth checking 'Prop Set / Jewellery Display' as it will be an evolving page!
Here we go a sneak peek of my favourite geometric sculpture stills of the current collection in all its monochrome glory!
My first blog post about the sculpture solids as well as prepping and displaying jewellery and other small products for a photoshoot include options of flat lays, stacking and aligning as well as some options with background.
Thank you all it is awesome to share these with you!
May I inspire you?
I do love crafting concrete sculpture solids and the more unique the more fun I am having. I usually create minimal artistic stills but recently I also used them to display and elevate works by other artists.
Since these blocks are one offs in the way they feature imperfections and often in the combination or design they are sold in as well, the styled images of the set wont be seen on my site anymore. I think that is a shame as they can inspire and help to get started with setting up and get the creative juices running.
So here we go a collection of photography styling ideas for jewellery, pins and smaller beauty items....
Stack them ...
Align them ...
Flat lay them ...
Style them with background - fabric, paper or metal sheets and / or by adding other props ....
I hope those ideas inspire you and of course I would love to see what you come up with!
