Lacks context. Sure it's dremel. Why is it dusty. What did it just do. What did it just dremel. It must have done something half the bit is gone. The dremel case sign is upside down, instinctively had to rotate my head, since it's half the picture. I'd do more shots of the bit. It just did something. what did it do?

Why is it dusty and dirty? its a dremel.. Its not suppose to be clean and sparkly. I purposely put the case upside down so I could show the dremel 4000 on the drill right side up.

You completely missed the point.

Why is it dirty as in - show what made it dirty to add some modicum of interest to the photo...

Its a close up I don't think I could add what its done to the picture.It was ment to be a picture of the case and the tool its self.

You're posting in the critique area.

They're offering critique.

Why are you arguing?

I'm not arguing im telling them how I shot the photo, how am I suppose to fit in other things in a close up? I posted the photo here because I wanted to see if the picture was sound as far as aperture ect..

It seems pretty self explanatory... to get other stuff in the shot, you'd back up.. or shoot at a FL shorter than 100mm ...

Since it's labeled as a "product" picture, product photography usually shows either a well lit picture of the clean product in its entirety, or a well lit photo of the product in use.

As a product shot - in my mind that means as an advertizing photo, I would not take this one - the tool looks dirty ( like it was just left out ) and there is no "story" in the shot as mentioned above.

suggestion: take a piece of clean pine, use the Dremel with a cutter blade, cut the word Dremel into the wood, lay the "dirty" tool on the board - you now have a couple of pieces that when combined show the usefullness of the tool, explains the dust/wood dust.

or

wipe it all down so it looks shiny new, open the case to let the viewer know it is a case for the tool, perhaps light it by hanging a sheet over the piece with a work light above the sheet to give a genrerally soft light, then highlight the tool.tool label with a maglight flashlight to focus a light splasho on the tool.

Just a couple of thoughts based upon your posting title request.

The upper third could be occupied with wood and/or whatever could have been dremeled. It wouldn't be the main focus of the shot, by any means, but would make it feel like the dremel is in it's element. Right now, with just the wall (?) there, it makes it feel more like a typical snapshot.

That said, I like the technical aspects of the photo. The device is crisp, with just enough DOF to not make the case the focus of the shot. Nice.
