The Simple Hydro Boost comes in a clinical white tube with a shiny blue cap. We like to shoot the product in way that shows the whiteness of the tube body with a shiny reflection on the blue plastic tube. We like to give the product a 3 dimensional look with a distinct shadow on 1 side of the product.
Setting Up the Stage and Light Placements
A standard dark background stage was setup using a black background placed far from the subject to avoid reflection. A black acrylic sheet provides a shiny base to create a subject reflection. A white light was placed overhead with a red and blue light on 2 sides of the bottle.
Camera: ILCE6400. Lens: E 18-55mm. Focal length: 48mm. Exposure: 1/8s, F 11, +0.0EV, ISO100. The reflection on the blue plastic cap was well captured. But overall the product appeared flat and has too much yellow tint.
Post Production Edits
The shot was imported into Lightroom. The yellow as removed using colour grading. Exposure and contrast are adjusted to make the product stand out. Blues saturation was increased to restore the blue plastic cap colours.
In Photoshop we cleaned up the dust and scratches on the product using the Spot Healing Brush tool and a Patch tool. The image was cropped and placed on a new white layer to finish the final look.
