Well, the site is up and running and we have had a great response to our sunglasses so far.
Since we launched the site a lot of people have asked where I got my product photos done, as they look so good. Well, there's a story to that..........
Way back when, when the site was being designed, I wanted to get the best photos I possibly could to truly reflect on how good the product looked. After some research I contacted a few photography studios and sent them some sunglasses so I could get some sample shots.
What came back was less than impressive:
To get all 46 pairs of Faded Days photographed from 3 angles was going to be expensive.....like, new Jet Ski expensive. There was no way I was paying any amount of cash for something I was not happy with, so I took matters into my own hands.
First of all, I bought a DIY photo studio, but the shots were still not good enough, I could not get the clean, crisp background I wanted.
I needed a pure white, reflective surface without blemish or crease....Then came my eureka moment, BATHTUB!
I got every light source I could get my hands on and set up studio in the bath
After three days of drawing lines on my bathtub with a Sharpie for positioning, I had some great shots. I sent the images off to http://www.lanza-design.com/ to scrub out all of the lines I had drawn. The result.......
Now, I'm the first to admit, this isn't very rock n roll, and it won't score me many cool points, but sometimes you just have to get in there and do things yourself.
