But before I wore it, I decided to make some product photos of my shoes (before it starts smelling of feet instead of shoes...). I have decided that I wanted to do a simple set up for this product shot: just light coming from a north-facing window, a white reflector and a white cloth to cover the table top. I used a white cloth so that it can also serve as a reflector for the bottom of the shoes. I also used the white reflector to accent and to fill in the shadows in the shoes.
My camera was set on a tripod and I used a 100mm macro lens. The photos were post-processed in Lightroom though using the term "post-processed" is really a stretch: the only thing I did in Lightroom was adjust the white balance (a must for product photography) and changed the crop of the photos. That's it!
I am so happy I (finally) get to own a pair of Chucks. And for some reason, whenever I think of it, song It's Still Rock and Roll to Me by Billy Joel comes to mind and vice versa:
"Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers,
You get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers"
Though not exactly cheap, this pair of shoes is now my favorite! :)
